JANUARY - FEBRUARY 



POLICE UPHEAVAL IN S. F. 

As this edition of the Police & Peace Officers' Journal goes to press, cosmopolitan San Francisco is in the throes of the greatest 
reorganization of the police department in the city's history. 

Inauguration on January 9, of George Christopher as Mayor for the next four years was the signal for an upheave! that has left the 
police department gasping and politicians sagely making predictions. 

The movement stemmed originally from election promises of George Christopher that if elected, he would institute changes in the 
police set-up of the city aimed "to award merit in the department and put an end to favoritism." Weight was lent to the candidate's 
words since he had been a supervisor for years and was then currently President of the Board of Supervisors. 

Following his election in November and during a series of preparatory meetings and organizational conferences in the ensuing in- 
ter%'al prior to taking office. Mayor-elect Christopher reiterated his determination to institute reforms in the department. 

Then, in the course of his "thank you" speech to the voters who had swept him into office with the greatest majority ever given a 
Mayor of the city by the Golden Gate, Christopher warned that he was determined to "put in the administrative field a great team of 
dedicated servants" who would "accept their obligations in the most altruistic light. That the old term 'politics as usual' will be relegat- 
ed to the background !" 

Less than twenty-four hours later he officially announced a new Police Commission — Harold R. McKinnon, lawyer and former pres- 
ident of the Communit)' Chest, who was named President; Paul A. Bissinger and Thomas J. Mellon, both businessmen and both form- 
er presidents of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce. 

Precedents immediately began to be broken ! 

(1) The Mayor and his new commissioners called two unprecedented mass meetings of the 1700 men and women of the depart- 
ment, one in the early afternoon attended 

pied by the police. (The Police Journal, 
der the heading "L. A, sets S. F, 



by half the personnel and the other at 5 : 30 
p.m. of the same day. 

(2) A sweeping investigation was or- 
dered into the circumstances surrounding 
the raid of an alleged "bookie " operation 
close to the Hall of Justice, which raid was 
conducted by Federal agents accompanied 
by District Attorney Thomas Lynch and 
Chief of Inspectors James English without 
the knowledge of Police Captains. 

(3) Francis (Frank) J. Ahern, Inspec- 
tor in charge of the Homicide detail with 
the Civil Service rank of patrolman, was 
named Chief of Police, effective February 
1. 

(4) Chief of Police George Healy, due 
to retire from the department in a few 
months, resigned and Captain John Eng- 
ler, deputy Chief, was made Acting Chief 
until he is succeeded by Ahern. 

( 5 ) Announcement by the Police Com- 
mission that a nationally-known expert 
would be employed to help make a survey 
of the department. 

(6) Reiteration by Mayor Christopher 
that he would spear-head a drive to erect a 
new Hall of Justice building to replace the 
antiquated, unsanitary quarters now occu- 



under tne neadmg L. A, sets b. f. an ex- 
ample," made a strong editorial plea for 
such a building and ran a picture and infor- 
mation in its October-November issue con- 
cerning the beautiful, modern structure 
now housing the Los Angeles Police De- 
partment. ) 

(7) Chief Ahern made several imme- 
diate changes with promises of others to 
come. As this edition of the Journal went 
to press, the following official reassign- 
ments were announced: 

Thomas J. Cahill was named Deputy 
Chief of Police. Like the new Chief, Tom 
Cahill, 45, has the civil service rank of pa- 
trolman. But he has been Ahern's partner 
in homicide and racket investigations for 
the last decade. He is not only an associate 
of Ahern in police work but his confidant. 
In elevating Cahill to the post, the Chief 
said: 

"Everyone knows how close Tom and I 
have been, both on the job and as personal 
friends. But that didn't have anything to do 
with his appointment. 

"I went into the qualifications of every- 
one I thought was a good man for the job 



and because of Tom's loyalty, integrity, his 
forcefulness and his ability and knowledge 
of police work, he came up on top of the 
list every time." 

Cahill succeeds John Engler who, rumor 
has it, is slated to become commander of 
either Central or Northern district. 

Captain Daniel McKlem, in charge of 
Southern station, was named Supervising 
Captain with instructions to tighten up the 
discipline throughout the department. 

"I picked him because he is the best Cap- 
tain I have, " explained Ahern. "He is a 
disciplinarian and knows all phases of po- 
lice work." 

Captain Cornelius P. Murphy, whom 
McKlem succeeds, takes over as head of the 
Bureau of Special Ser\ ices (the vice squad) 
replacing Captain Edward Green, still to 
be reassigned. 

Captain Michael F. Fitzpatrick, who had 
been department secretary, is replaced by 
Captain Daniel Kiely. Fitzpatrick is in ill 
health and may retire in June. He was 
named propert)' clerk. 

Reappointed to their present posts were: 

James English, Chief of Inspectors; 
Martin Lee, Captain of Inspectors; Otto

Meyer. Director of Traffic; Ralph E. 
Olstad. Captain of Traffic; Optain John 
Mcehan, Director of Personnel; John T 
Butler, Police Commission Secretary; 
Thomas B. Tracy, Inspector of Schools 
Traffic Control. 

All but one Captain, Phil Kiely of 
Northern were transferred to other dis- 
tricts as follows: 

Charles Borland to Central; A. G. Stcf 
fen to Southern; H. L. Nelson to Mission, 
W. S. Ames to Richmond; E. P. Donahue 
to Inj'lc'side; E. C. Greene to Taraval 
Peter Conroy to Potrcro and Ted J. Terlau 
to Park. 

In a press conference preceding the mass 
mtttmgs held January 1 3. at the Noursc 
Schix)l Auditorium, Mayor Christopher de- 
dared that the police department morale 
was at a low ebb and that the purpose of 
the meetings was to meet the men and wo- 
men personally and to assure them that "no 
longer could a handful of men direct the 
destinies of 1700. " 

In addressing the personnel, the new 
Mayor enlarged on his talk with the press. 
"In the past our police department has 
been subjected to criticism," said the May- 
or. "When I stated in my campaign speech- 
es that I intended to raise the morale and 
efficiency of the department, I meant it. 

"I want to start a new era in the depart- 
ment. I want to give the men a square deal 
and I want them to give me a square deal. 
I don't intend to [x-rmit two, three or five- 
men to disparage and degrade the reputa- 
tions of the remaining members. ' 

He concluded by urging policemen to 
discuss their problems with the commis- 
sioners, pointing out that too often the 
commission has bc-cn a myth to the police 
officer who had never been called before it 
for disciplinary action. 

Commissioner MiKinnon was equally 
emphatic, as were his two colleagues. Mc- 
Kinnon said in part: 

"The new commission experts every man 
who wears a star to arrest crime wherever 
he finds it without fear from any source 
whatever. And we will back him up. 

"We will expect every captain an J every 
officer in a district to be aware of the crim- 
inal activities that can be detected by ordi- 
nary police methods. 

If it should happen that anyone in the 
department betrays the law — and I pray 
it never will be judgment will be swift 
and certain." 

Then, while tongues wagged and con- 
jecture was r.impant as to what "brass" 
would be elevated to Chief, came another 
precedent breaker — a real lulu!

with [x>lice work throughout his larecr to

NEW DEAL FOR SAN FRANCISCO POLICE DEPARTMENT 

San Francisco's new Mayor, George Christopher, names three new police commissioners to guide the destinies of the San Fran- 
cisco Police Department. (Story on Page 3). Left to right, Paul A. Bissinger, Mayor Christopher, Harold McKinnon, named 
commission chairman, and Thomas J. Mellon. (Photo by George Shimmon) 



Homicide and Racket Squad, an "untouch- 
able" with a hard-hitting record of achieve- 
ment in the department, was tapped by the 
Mayor and the Commissioners to institute 
the needed reforms aimed to "lift the mo- 
rale of the rank and file." (See Page 6 for 
V picture and story of the new Chief's career) 
he was succeeded by Al Nelder (See pic- 
ture of Chief and successor on outside cov- 
er.) 

Ahern's appointment followed a series 
of week-end conferences first with the com- 
missioners, and then the Mayor. The latter 
disclosed that he had had a two hour con- 
ference with Ahem prior to informing him 
that he had been selected Chief. 

Ahern's acceptance was coupled with the 
statement that he was in complete sympathy 
with the announced policies of the new re- 
gime. Those policies were then enumerat- 
ed, in part, by Chairman McKinnon who 
said: 

"Chief Ahern will be charged with see- 
ing that a new policy will be carried out, 
and that policy will be that captains and 
their subordinates will be held responsible 
for knowledge of what is openly going on 
in their jurisdictions, and that patrolmen 



are to make arrests wherever they find crim- 
inal activities, without fear of interference 
from any source." 

The new Commission President is wide- 
ly known as a student of the philosophy of 
law. He is a former president of the San 
Francisco Community Chest, and also of 
the St. Thomas More Society, Catholic law- 
yer's organization. 

Mellon is vice president of the Wesix 
Electric Heater Co. He is a leader in Re- 
publican activities, the National Confer- 
ence of Christians and Jews, and the Uni- 
versity of San Francisco Alumni Associa- 
tion. 

Bissinger, the third member of the Com- 
mission, is president of the West's largest 
hide and tallow firm. He has served the 
Community Chest, the San Franr'sco Mu- 
sical Association, the YMCA and the 
World Affairs Council. 

As the town seethed with rumor and 
conjecture as to the ne.xt move to be made, 
the Mayor hinted that a bond issue might 
be put on the June ballot for a new central 
police and criminal courts building. Chris- 
topher added that he wanted to combine 



the police project with slum clearance, by 
selecting a site that would automatically 
result in eliminating some sub-sta ndard 
skid row buildings, possibly South of Mar- 
ket. 

Los Angeles' Police Administration 
building, as it is called, is undoubtedly one 
of the Nation's finest. The Journal, in its 
October-November issue setting up this 
structure as a shining example for San 
Francisco, dwelt at length on the well laid 
plans to make the Southern California 
structure the very last word in police build- 
ings the world over. 

The Journal again reminds San Fran- 
ciscans that the Los Angeles building was 
constructed on bond issue money, the low 
bid for the structure being $6,142,548. 

We repeat the question we asked a cou- 
ple of months ago: 

"How about a bond issue in other towns 
— San Francisco in particular?" 

Perhaps new quarters, given national 
publicity as was given Los Angeles on a 
recent "Dragnet " program, might do a 
tremendous lot in lifting the morale of the 
San Francisco Police Department !

THE STORY OF CHIEF AHERN 



A man who wxs always tiKi busy doin^ 
police work to take time off to attain high 
rank through examination, is San Framis- 
CO s new Chief of Police. 

With a civil stnicc rating of patrolman 
while Inspector in charge of the Homicide 
Detail, Francis J. Ahern, a real "South ot 
Market Street ' boy. takes the highest posi- 
tion in the Golden Gate city's department 

Frank, as he is comnumly called, is a 
"he" man, six-feet tall and built in profwr- 
tion. While untouchable and unswcr^ing 
in carrying out assignments, nonetheless 
Frank is popular both with the men in the 
department and with the citizens with 
whom he lomes in contact. 

Fifty-five years old, the new Chief 
springs from Irish and Italian stock, his 
mother being of Italian extraction and his 
father's family coming from County Cork. 
His dad's dead but his mother still lives in 
San Francisco. 

The Chief was educated in San Francis- 
co, being a graduate of Polytechnic High 
School. Before joining the department in 
1929, he worked in the claims department 
of the Southern Pacific Railway. 

Born with special talents for polite- 
work, these talents were quickly recognized 
by department "brass". Except during the 
1934 waterfront strike. Chief Ahern never 
walked a beat but was assigned to special- 
ized investigations. 

After a brief period as a member of the 
night stjuad in w hat was then the detective 
bureau- now the Bureau of Inspectors- 
he was assigned to narcotics work. 

On Homicide Sqi'ad 
In 19.^7 he was assigned to the homicide 
scjuad, where he has ber'T since, except for 
time to attend the 1 HI National Academy 
and SIX months on loan to the Kefauver 
lommittec as an insi-stigator. 

In addition to routine homicide investi- 
gations during this time, however, he was 
the police s|iearhead in cleaning up the 
abortion racket that once flourished in San 
Francisco and the (all-girl racket and he 
headed the long investigation that lead to 
San Quentin for Jimmie Tarantino, Ten- 
derloin extortionist. 

ComnKnting on Aherns appointment. 
Mayor Ciiristopher said : 

In the initial interview I had with him 
just before he was appointed Chief, I told 
him that all I wanted was a streamlined, 
efficient department whose integrity would 
be unc]uc$tioned " 




CmtF FRANCIS AUtRN 



He described Ahern as a man with "a 
reputation for integrity both Icxally and na- 
tionally. " 

"I understand," the Mayor said, "that 
when the FBI wanted information they 
would bypass the police department and go 
to him. That's enough for me. " 

Immediately after his appointment was 
m.»de public, the new Chief conferred with 
Mayor Christopher at the City Hall. 

"We re in business, Frank, ' the Mayor 
beamed, "and we want the people to know. 

"I feel with confidence now th.it I won't 
\i\c to be a policeman for the Police De- 
partment. I have a lot of confidence in 
you." 

"Thank you, Mr. Mayor, " Ahern said. 
Ill do my utmost to fill the bill. 

"Tom Lynch (the District Attorney) 
and the other government agencies will co- 
o[^rate with us 100 [-"cr cent. There are a 
tremendous number of men in the Police 
Department who want to do a good job and 
they shouldn't be held back. I intend to car- 
ry your program and policy to the letter." 



Ahern was accompanied to the Mayor's 
office by Inspector Thomas Cahill, his close 
friend and No. 2 man on the homicide 
squad. 

An amusing angle of the appointment 
was the secrecy surrounding it. And indi- 
cative of Ahern was that he kept mum 
about the entire matter, because he was in- 
structed not to tell anyone. So his wife, 
Gertrude, learned of the appointment 
through the newspapers ! 

"When I talked to the Police Commis- 
sioners on Saturday, January I-lth, they 
told me the discussion was in confidence. 
So I just kept my mouth shut. " said Ahern. 
"My two kids aren't stupid and if one word 
had leaked, it would be all over two 
Schools."' 

The "kids' referred to arc Bernadcttc, a 
student at San Francisco College for Wo- 
men and Francis Joseph Jr., a pupil at St. 
Cecilia's. Bernadcttc is 18 years old and 
Junior 13.

GOSSIP OF THE PISTOL RANGES 



By J. Ross DUNNIGAN 



At the start of each year, you are all en- 
thused over the prospects of shooting your 
way to some darn good scores, in fact, you 
look for a much better shooting year than 
the last one. Sometimes your ammo is not 
made just right and a few misfires kinda 
throw your scores on the bum side. Occa- 
sionally it's a jam with the automatics or 
maybe it's the wind, or the effects of the 
night before. In any event, before you are 
aware of it the last match of the year is at 
hand and still no medals! Oh, well, it's 
only a couple of months until the next 
season opens and you start all over again. 
Some achieve their ambitions, but for most 
of the shooters it's just plug, plug and plug 
from year to year. Just look at all the 
shooters still in the Marksman class — and 
they are the boys who pay the bills, too. 

December 4th was the last shoot at the 
Oakland Club and in spite of the cold 
weather there were some 260 shooters run- 
ning all over the lot trj'ing to keep warm, 
for it really was a cold morning. The top 
shooters in the master class had difficulty 
in breaking 270 for the center-fire Na- 
tional match with the high score a lousy 
282. That's real cold. 

Scores Stay Low 

However, around 11:30 it started to 
warm up but by that time the old bones 
just couldn't take it and the scores were 
still poor. But the crowd was having a 
swell time and the statistical office refused 
to allow any more shooters over the five 
relays. It would have been easy to start six- 
relays for any of the matches but it would 
have been too long a day for all concern- 
ed so they stopped selling squadding tic- 
kets when they reached the end of five 
relays, which is 260 shooters. 

Cap Boomhower of the California 
Highway Patrol team, walked off with the 
top prize for the day closely followed by 
Gloria Norton — a matter of four points 
between them. Gloria has not been at the 
Oakland matches for three years and in 
spite of her lay-off from the Oakland 
grounds she had the boys in the top brack- 
et on their toes. Good, old reliable Milt 
Klipfel, also of the Highway Patrol, fin- 
ished third, tying with Gloria but losing 
out via the Creedmoor system. 

Mayor's Attitude 
I have been asked "wots to hoppen " 
with the shooting in San Francisco in 19'56 
but it seems no one knows for certain just 
how things will turn out. As you know, 
there is a new mayor coming in and his 
feeling regarding shooting have not been 
sounded out as yet. But, this I have heard 




HE "BOOMS" TO THE TOP— Captain C. E. Boomhower of the California Highway Patrol, 
lead a field of 240 at the recent Oakland pistol shoot, coping first prize. The popular Captain 
is stationed at the Vallejo office of the highly efficient state law enforcement agency. 



via a very good grapevine — that there are 
preparations being made at the San Fran- 
cisco range to hold a few matches starting 
early in the year — maybe April. The 
matches wil not be the elaborate ones that 
have been held there in the past but on a 
smaller and less expensive scale — but the 
main point is that there is plenty of pres- 
sure to have these matches so lets all hope 
we do have a few next year. 

At the November matches in Oakland 
there were questionnaires put out to the 
shooters with this question: "Are you in 
favor of having the Oakland matches NRA 
approved or not ?" The overwhelming vote 



(140 for 40 against) to have them NRA 
approved matches means there will be no 
choice next year for the shooters — it's 
either NRA approved or no shooting. 

The price of the matches will go up a 
nickel making the match 60^ for 1936. 
The price is still right and no doubt the 
NRA approved matches will bring out a 
lot of shooters who were not in favor of 
the Oakland non-approved matches. Who 
knows ?

ing the festive season but it's the first time

POLICE VIEWS ON DELINQUENCY 

In the belief thai Juvenile Delinquent) conMitutes the j;ravest or at least one of the gravest problems confronting our 
nation today, the Poiice a Peace Officers' Journal has been publishing a series of articles on the subject during the 
past several months, the last being by Irving Marks, a member of the San Francisco Police Department. 

Many reasons for weekend rowdyism, gangsterism and all-round flouting of law and decency by teenagers, have been ad- 
vanced. Too often, ALL teenagers have h«en labeled as incorrigibles, or near incorrigibles, because of the antics of the few. 

Because of the many theories advanced as to the cause and the possible cure of delinquency, the Journal is pleased to re- 
produce herein, the annual report of five police officers named to study the entire problem from a police angle. 

Five suggestions are forthcoming from this committee which should be of intense interest not only to police departments 
throughout (California but to judges. Juvenile departments and probation officers throughout the state. The report, issued

Juvenile Dihnc|ucniy. Just two words, 
but a problem that has meant somcthm^ 
entirely different to caih griiup pondering 
its causes and possible solutions. Parents 
have wondered where they have failed; 
church leaders have looked for an answer 
in the field of religion; large iitics and 
small neighborhixxls have joined in proj- 
ects to cope with it; rcireational authorities 
have imreascd their activities and pro- 
grams in their seanh for new ways to oc- 
cupy youth; sihcK>ls have changed their 
teaching methods; and law enforcement 
has experimented in many ways to meet it 
. . . yet, ... it still flourishes. 

What IS the answer to this two-word 
mystery that has plagued us throughout 
civilization .•' There is no one answer. We 
cannot prescribe a sure-fire cure for tliis 
problem because it has too many causes. 
Juvenile dclinc^unccy is a product resulting 
from a multitude of causes or contributing 
factors, such as broken homes, bad com- 
panions, lack of religious training and ed- 
ucation, lack of home supervision, and a 
scarcity of recreational facilities, just to 
mention a few. 

Millions of words have been written a. 
to what should or should not be done 
regarding these causes. The Committee 
docs not intend to add to this verbiage, but 
will adhere to our held, that of law en- 
forcement, and what can be done, or what 
we have found to be some of the best and 
most successful practues in dealing with 
juvenile dclincjucncy m |x)licc work. 

Five S()<.(.estions 

We have considered certain matters, 
which are of importance at this time to 
police departments, and have agreed upon 
the following: 

\. Police departments throughout the 
countr)- will, over the years, if for no other 
reason than the enlargement of our popu- 
lation, be confronted with an increasing 
juvenile delinquency situation and mu.st 
be forward-looking by making plans to 
meet this problem. 



2. Police departments should, for the 
protection of their individual communi- 
ties, in cases of juveniles bordering on the 
adult age who are hardened habitual 
oflFendcrs and have committed a serious 
crime, recommend waiver to an adult 
court; or, the Juvenile Court should 
remand jurisdiction on its own in such 
cases. 

3. Police should not engage in any form 
of unofficial probation system whereby 
juvenile and/or parents report back to 
them periodically. 

4. While the fact is recognized that 
Juvenile Court is the proper place for the 
treatment, correction, and follow-up of 
juvenile cases, police should assist as much

LIFE OF A POLICEWOMAN 



By Mrs. Margaret Snow 
(Chief of W^omen's Detroit Police Dept.) 



In Detroit policewomen work entirely in 
plain clothes. At all times when they are 
on duty they must carry their .38 revolver 
in a purse with a built-in holster, which the 
department now provides. The qualifica- 
tions for the position of policewoman are 
different from those in the men's division. 
The minimum educational requirement is 
a college degree or the equivalent. The nec- 
essary skill for dealing in a professional 
manner with people experiencing serious 
personal or family problems can be ac- 
quired only through study. 

The Woman's Division is responsible 
for the investigation and disposition on 
complaints of missing female persons of 
all ages, and missing complaints on all boys 
under 10 years of age. 

I find various attitudes in other depart- 
ments toward the value of women officers 
patrolling at night. In some cities, limited 
service by women officers is available dur- 
ing the hours of darkness, but unless called 
out on assignments, the policewomen re- 
main in their precinct or division head- 
quarters. In other cities, a policewoman 
makes such calls teamed with a man officer 
and interviews are conducted in his pres- 
ence even though the subject of the inter- 
view deals with the girl's immorality or a 
sex crime complaint. In Detroit, 26 of the 
total complement of 88 policewomen work 
various shifts from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. 
Our policewomen work alone during the 
day, but all those assigned any of the after- 
noon or night tours of duty work with 
another policewoman. They are on the 
streets in their district for their full eight 
hours, eKcept for the time required for 
report writing. They travel in radio equip- 
ped cars and unless physical violence is 
anticipated or the arrest of adult men is 
involved, they perform their task satisfac- 
torily without the aid of men officers. 
■When not busy on assigned complaints in 
their district, they give their full attention 
to the surveillance of all places frequented 
by youth which are recognized as being 
troublesome or potentially dangerous. At- 
tention is concentrated on dance halls, cab- 
arets, taxi dance halls, troublesome con- 
fectioneries, all-night restaurants, railway 
and bus depots and all-night movies. Po- 
licewomen seek to identify all juveniles 
observed after dark on the streets or in 
other public places who are unescorted by 
a responsible adult. 

The court department of the Woman's 
Division is staffed with approximately 20 
policewomen who are supervised by a po- 
licewoman lieutenant and policewoman 




EACH BULLET A WINNER— At least that's what two of the best San Francisco pistol shots 
claim. Bill Markell (left) and G. Elliot Murphy are seen deep in the heart of a cornfield test- 
ing their own brand of "Mar-Mur" leaden missiles, claimed more deadly than any ! 

collect the evidence; interview the defend- 
ant; arrange for polygraph examination, if 
indicated; have statements taken; investi- 
gate any alibi presented; prepare and pre- 
sent the case to the prosecuting attorney; 
arraign the defendant, and represent the 
police department in all subsequent court 
proceedings. 

The problem of providing children with 
protection from the sex criminal is one 
phase of police responsibility which causes 
grave public concern. Most persons are of 
the opinion that an alert police department 
could practically wipe out this menace to 
our children's welfare by proper police pa- 
trol of the streets, theaters, and other places 
where children are often unescorted. Dur- 
ing 1954, 1,215 sex crimes against juvenile 
girls under 17 years and boys under 10 
years of age were established on complants 
made to our Division. A study of these 
1,215 complaints is interesting. Only 412, 
or about one-third of the total, were com- 
mitted by strangers; 127 were committed 
by relatives, 1 5 by mother's boy friend, 
151 by roomers and 474 were committed 
by friends and acquaintances. I'm sure you 
will agree with me that the most alert po- 
lice department in the world would prob- 
ably not be able to protect any but the 412 
children who were molested by strangers. 



sergeant. This department is augmented 
and ably assisted by a squad of six male 
detectives supervised by a detective ser- 
geant. These detectives attempt to make 
the arrest of any adult man wanted by the 
Woman's Division on a felony crime who 
was not taken into custody by precinct de- 
tectives, or whose identity is subsequently 
established, arrange for others wanted on 
misdemeanor complaints to appear, and 
cooperate in our effort to clear open com- 
plaints. 

Briefly stated, exclusive of murder and 
kidnapping for ransom, all crimes in our 
city are referred to the Woman's Division 
for investigation if the complainant is a 
girl under 17 years or a boy under 10 
ten years. The crimes committed against 
this group are mostly sex crimes, but also 
include crimes of any nature, such as as- 
sault and battery, cruelty to children, aban- 
donment, etc. In addition, we process all 
complaints of sex crimes, committed 
against adult women. If the defendant is 
a juvenile boy, the facts of the complaint 
are referred to the Youth Bureau for their 
further investigation and disposition of the 
juvenile defendant. Only if a waiver is 
granted do policewomen proceed, as in 
complaints involving adult offenders. 

I understand that policewomen in many 
cities investigate or assist in the investiga- 
tion of these types of complaints, but in 
Detroit we are charged -with further re- 
sponsibility. We interview the witnesses;

OUR COMMON TASK 



Page n 



It is indeed a pleasure to meet with the 
Nation's law enforcement leaders at this 
annual convention of the International 
Association of Chiefs of Police. (The 
62nd Convention of the International 
Association of- Chiefs of Police held re- 
cently in Philadelphia.) We meet for the 
single purpose of seeking ways and means 
to more efficiently fulfill our common task 
of protecting the public welfare. We can 
exchange views and discuss our mutual 
problems in a spirit of friendship and 
understanding. 

There is not a law enforcement officer 
in the Nation who has not had his 
patience, ingenuity, fortitude and even his 
faith in human nature put to a severe test 
while carrying out his sworn duty to make 
his community a safer place in which to 
live. We can take real satisfaction from 
the gradual but steady progress which we 
have made in recent years, despite the add- 
ed burdens we have been forced to assume. 
May I say, on behalf of my associates in 
the FBI, that we are proud to be associ- 
ated with so many dedicated public ser- 
vants. 

Perhaps it is because law enforcement 
has been under such heavy strains that a 
new spirit of cooperation has developed. 
In the discharge of duties as sacred as 
ours, there can be no excuse for lack of 
cooperation, petty jealousy or bickering. 

Mutual Problem.s 

In the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 
cooperation is the first lesson each Special 
Agent must learn. I am firmly convinced 
that the home town police is the Nation's 
first line of defense against the lawless. I 
am gratified daily by the evidence of the 
desire of honest and efficient law enforce- 
ment officers and agencies to aid in every 
way possible in meeting our mutual prob- 
lems. I want to express my appreciation 
and thanks to the local, county and state 
officers who have so willingly aided the 
FBI. 

The fact that law enforcement in any 
community is only as good as the people 
of that community demand that it be, 
raises the all-important problem of citizen 
cooperation. Law and order can be main- 
tained only through a community partner- 
ship. The success of this partnership is 
determined not only by the extent and 
quality of public aid to law enforcement 
but also by the ability of peace officers to 
inspire cofidence and justify public sup- 
port from the citizens and the press. 



By ]. Ed<.ar Hoover 

Every police department would benefit if 
it could inspire in citizens greater interest 
in its activities. Law enforcement should 
do everything within its power to height- 
en public awareness of the citizen's duty to 
become acquainted with the agencies to 
which he looks for protection. 

In this, a cooperative relationship with 
the press of the community can be of ines- 
timable value. Publication of accurate 
news of crime and misdeeds serves a mul- 
titude of useful purposes. Newspapers and 
other media of public information often 
materially aid the law enforcement officers 
in the apprehension of criminals through 
the publication of the descriptions and 
pictures of wanted men. They likewise 
can bring to the public attention as no 
other media can the needs and problems 
with which we as law enforcement officers 
are daily confronted. After all, a news- 
paper is a mirror of life and it is well for 
the public to look into that mirror so it 
may be alive to conditions as they exist.

A great demoralizing influence upon 
the police of the Nation is the pitifully 
low salaries they are paid. In many cities 
ranging from 10,000 to 25,000 inhabi- 
tants, the entrance salaries for law enforc- 
ing officials start as low as $1770, while in 
cities having over 500,000 inhabitants, 
entrance salaries start as low as $3360. 
Compare this with the starting salaries of 
$2960 for messengers and typists and 
$3175 for stenographers in the United 
States Government service and we realize 
why law enforcement has difficulty in re- 
cruiting and retaining the services of com- 
petent and dedicated officers. 

Police Pay Low 
On a nationwide basis, police receive 
less pay than skilled workers who average 
$4500 or salesmen who average $4420 
per annum. In industrial areas, the aver- 
age policeman would better his financial 
condition by working in a factory. That 
the Nation's police are grossly underpaid 
is brought into even sharper focus when a

[viliteman's starting salan- is compared 
wrth the entrance salar)- for its garbage 
...Ikaors. which is $39^0 a year. 

The answer is public education, directed 
jt the- individual needs of the communit)'. 
This has been demonstrated in the uphill 
tight we have all experienced in the held 
of law enforcement training. When the 
FBI National Academy was founded 
twenty years ago last July, with the aid of 
your Association, police training was the 
cxicplion rather than the rule. Last year 
alone, it was our privilege to participate 
m 2.31 'i lixal, county and state nolite 
training schools throughout the United 
States which, for the most part, were being 
operated by graduates of the FBI Nation- 
al Academy, who number 2,984. 

Public education and the development 
of a truly workable partnership between 
citizens and law enforcement are impera- 
tive necessities if police departments are to 
be kept free of the stifling influence of 
venal politics. Every honest thief of police 
knows that corruption begets corruption. 
One of the most degenerative forces in 
American life has been corruption in pub- 
lic oHfice. Corrupt politicians make for 
venal political machines. It is the taxpayer 
and law-abiding citizen who suffers. 

Lack of Interest 

Whenever we find machines of corrup- 
tion, we also find an attitude of public 
indifference. We also find law enforce- 
ment s''ackled and inefficient — we find 
I rime running rampant. When a lacka- 
daisical attitucie develops, when corrupt, 
venal politicians take over, the first agency 
of public service to suffer is the police. By 
the same token, the influence of efficient 
law enforcement officers can turn the tide, 
because essentially the soul and conKience 
of America are right. An unyielding stand 
for the right is infectious. It is the first 
step in molding public opinion. 

When a law enforcement b«idy proves 
to the publk that it is much concerned 
with the establishment of inn>Kcnce as it 
IS with the establishment of guilt, it wins 
the support of dc-c«int citizens. The scK)ncr 
c-vcryone realizes that the police will work 
.tjually hard to extricate an innocent per- 
son who is caught in a web of circumslan- 
i-s. the greater will be the public confi- 
dence and support of that law enforce- 
ment agency. Beyond that, the effects will 
be far-reaching. Prejudiic-s whiih are born 
of incompetence and nurtured by the sus- 
puuin of duress thrive up<jn doubts skill- 
fully extraited from the testimony of un- 
trained police oflicers by unscrupulous 
lawyers. The very heart of law enforce- 
ment IS at stake whenever an officer's testi- 
mony IS shaken or contradicted in court.

conditions of our times necessitate a great- 
er consciousness of the need for protecting 
the civil rights of all people. Not only 
must our actions in fact be proper, we 
must be able to establish in court, if need 
be, that they were proper. 

Every time the charge of duress, uneth- 
ical conduct or third degree tactics is sub- 
stantiated, all law enforcement gets a 
"black eye. " When mistakes are made, we 
ourselves should be the first to take cor- 
rective action. The sooner every practice 
smacking of oppression is abolished, the 
quicker law enforcement will win the re- 
spect of the citizens it serves. 

There is another area where much re- 
mains to be done in the way of public edu- 
cation. There is a real need to make it im- 
possible for the mouthpieces of the under- 
world to effect delays by quibbling over 
words and technicalities. 

The American people do not want their 
liberties chipped away through reckless 
and willful invasions by the police. Nei- 
ther do they want criminal elements to 
corrupt constitutional safeguards to cover 
their depradations through technicalities. 

Opinion Divided 
The matter of searches and seizures is 
one of the problems we encounter daily. 
The law is far from settled. The most un- 
expected and unusual situations can arise 
when action must be taken immediately 
without time to consult law books or the 
prosecuting attorney. It is grossly unfair 
for criminals to go free, after they have 
committed clear violations of the law, be- 
cause of some unexpected technicality 
when law enforcement acts in good faith 
upon the basis of its best judgment and 
training. 



Even the Justices of the Supreme Court 
have not been able to reach unanimous de- 
cisions as to what is right and proper in 
such cases. From October, 1941, to June 
of this year, the Supreme Court has ren- 
dered opinions in twenty cases originating 
with police action involving searches and 
seizures. In not a single opinion could all 
of the Justices agree on the proper course 
of procedure which should have been 
taken. 

The burden of proof is becoming more 
and more difficult. There is an increasing 
reluctance on the part of many citizens to 
testify. This is understandable when wit- 
nesses are not protected in courts from 
vicious smears and when unethical lawyers 
go beyond the proper bounds of cross-ex- 
amination. 

Debase Tactics 
The confidential informant has become 
an institution and is used as a means of 
establishing truth. The use of the confi- 
dential informant is as old as man. In fact 
the first recorded use of the confidential 
informant is found in the Old Testament. 
As an institution, the confidential inform- 
ant is used not only by law enforcement, 
but in practically every walk of life, par- 
ticularly by the press and our financial in- 
stitutions. In recent years, there has been

a determined campaign to deprive law en- 
forcement of the use of the time-tested

of Communist strategy to convert the

ludaul process«. For the most part, the 
icihnitjuc of the smear has been de>'ised 
by Communist lawyers, skilled in con- 
cealing foul and despicable acts behind 
the Fifth Amendment. They employ tactics 
which even the most unscrupulous under- 
world mouthpiece' would frown upon 
iS improper. 

The Communist owes no allegiance to 
God, to his family or to his country. He 
owes It only to the Party and will do any- 
thing the Party commands him to do. He 
will lie, cheat, steal or do anything for the 
Communist cause. 

The inroads that Communist propagan- 
da has made in influencing law-abiding 
Americans, who fail to realize that crim- 
inal conspiracies are conceived behind 
I loscd doors under the cover of darkness, 
are disheartening. It is through the efforts 
of confidential informants that we have 
been able to expose the Communist con- 
spiracy in the past and through them we 
must stake much of the future security of 
the United States. That is why such a 
vinous and sustained attack has bc-en made 
against former Communists who have 
tirst-hand knowledge of the secret, diabol- 
ical purposes of the Communist Party. 

About Communism 

Those now furthering the campaign of 
vituperation against witnesses say that the 
Communist menace is a myth created by 
those who tc-stified against it. Therefore, 
to destroy the myth, they fee! it is neces- 
sary to destroy the witnesses. They refuse 
to recognize the Communist enslavement 
of one third of the world's surface. These 
witnesses have bc-en cross-examined in our 
courts by judges and juries and they have 
been brought under the penetrating eye of 
the American press. 

The Communists, bent on weakening 
our American way of life, have now turned 
to enlist other individuals and groups to 
mnvcy propaganda designed to discredit 
truth. 

It is through the 'psuedo liberals" that 
the Communists do some of their most 
4estnictive work. These fictitious liberals 
arc the individuals who through insidi- 
tmsly slanted and sly prop.igandistic writ- 
ing and reports oppose urgently needed 
internal senirit)' measures, conduct a one- 
sided i.impaign to discredit Government 
witnc-ssi-%; present the menace of Commu- 
nism as a myth of hysteria; urge that we 
tolerate the subversive acts of Communists 
because Communists are only "noncon- 
formists; contend that the Communist 
Party is a political ' movement and that 
It is improper to consider it a criminal 
conspiraiy linked to a world conspiracy 
to overthrow our Ciovernment by force 
and violence.

WAV To Progress 

Constructive criticism and constant eval- 
uation of methods, procedures and accom- 
plishments in an objective manner is the 
way to progress. But, the eagerness of some 
to attack everyone and everything related 
to the exposure of the Communist conspir- 
acy in this country is hardly the mark of a 
true liberal. Indeed, the true liberal is 
opposed to everything Communism repre- 
sents, for the very nature of Communism 
is the antithesis of liberalism. 

The members of the International Asso- 
ciation of Chiefs of Police know how the 
confidential informant has contributed to 
law and order. We cannot minimize the 
hate of the underworld whether it be the 
underworld of hoodlums or the under- 
world of subversive traitors and its urgent 
desire also to identify and discredit the 
confidential informant. There needs to be 
a greater effort to protect those who risk 
their lives for the protection of society. 

It is almost a daily occurence for FBI 
Agents to convey information secured from 
confidential informants to local police 
which, for example, cleared up 300 bur- 
glaries in one case. In another case, 47 
stolen cars were recovered and, in still 
another instance, a million-dollar robbery 
was thwarted. Without this two-way street 
of exchange of information, many crimes 
would go unsolved. 

National Disgrace 
In recent years, the Nation's law en- 
forcement agencies have been under se- 
vere pressures. The crime problem after 
World War, II followed the trend of his- 
tory with a steady and alarming increase. 
The crime picture is a national disgrace. 
Since the end of the war, the number of 
serious crimes has increased 62.7 per cent, 
while our population increased only 21.3 
per cent. On the basis of what we now 
know, the next ten years will witness a 22 
per cent increase in crime over present 
levels, while our population will increase 
only 1 5 per cent. 

Crime has taken on such proportions

BETTER YIELD!— The new YIELD RIGHT OF WAY sign is making its appearance in Cali- 
fornia cities and motorists should be familiar with it, says the California State Automobile 
Association. When approaching such a sign the driver must (1) reduce speed to 15 miles an 
hour, and (2) stop when necessary, to yield the right of way to any 
the intersecting street near enough 
Merritt (left) and Peggy Kremer. 



vehicles approaching on 
constitute a hazard.' Displaying the sign are Sondra 



A new triangular "YIELD RIGHT OF 
WAY" traffic sign is making its appear- 
ance at some intersections in California 
cities. The use of such signs in this state 
was authorized on September 7, says the 
California State Automobile Association. 

The "YIELD " sign is designed to ex- 
pedite the safe movement of traffic 
through certain intersections where the 
volume of traffic does not warrant a STOP 
sign. Some cities have already installed 
them and many others are expected to fol- 
low suit shortly. 

A motorist approaching an intersection 
where there is a YIELD sign is required 
to (1) reduce his speed to 15 miles per 
hour, and, (2) when necessary, stop to 
yield the right of way to any vehicles 
approaching on the intersecting street that 
are so close as to constitute an immedi- 
ate hazard. 

The use of the new YIELD sign in 
individual cities will be determined by the 
police departments, city traffic engineers 
and other local officials after they have 
conducted studies relative to the need for 
such a sign, and a local ordinance or 
resolution adopted. 

The YIELD sign was first used in the 
United States in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 



1951. It is now used extensively in Dallas, 
Texas, New York City and in Canada. A 
similar sign which reads "Priority Road 
Ahead " has been used in Europe for many 
years. 

In reply to the question as to how did 
the idea for the new YIELD sign origin- 
ate, the CSAA states that at many inter- 
sections where STOP signs are in place, 
studies show that a complete stop may 
not always be essential for safety. How- 
ever, the need for some type of control 
is apparent. The YIELD sign is intended 
to solve this problem.

J. EDGAR HOOVER 

(Coatniu.J hum P.-s^ H) 
(hat one out of every seventeen homes will 
Ix- Mctimized this year, while one out of 
ever) fifteen persons in the United States 
has been arrested for an offense more seri- 
ous than a traffic violation. Last year, more 
than two million major crimes were com- 
mitted, while there were eighteen and one- 
half million lesser offenses. 

Of immediate concern is the present 
trend of juvenile delinqueniy, which 1 
prefer to lall adult delinquency because of 
the apathy and failure of too many parents 
to assume their proper responsibilities. 
Last year, an estimated S 19,000 children, 
aged 10 through 17, were arrested, or one 
out every 38 boys and girls in this age 
group. 

Familv Restraint 

Much of our juvenile crime today is due 
to the fact that we as a nation have failed 
in maintaining family restraint and family 
discipline and we have not taught the 
youngster to develop self-distipline. The 
juvenile jungle has resulted from insuffi- 
cient spiritual and moral training. Until 
youth learns to know, respect and obey 
the teachings of Almighty God, we can 
never expect them to obey civil law or laws 
of society. 

The crime problem is essentially a youth 
problem. Law enforcement and the entire 
community must concentrate more and 
more on the problem of the juvenile. Last 
year, 'Sl.h per cent of all persons arrested 
for auto theft were under 1 8 years of age. 
Forty-nine per cent of all persons arrested 
for burglary and 43.6 per cent of the per- 
son', arrested for larceny were in the same 
age group. I suggest that this alarming con- 
dition would be quickly remedied if par- 
ents were held legally and /inancially re- 
•iponsible for the criminal acts of their 
children. 

America enjoys the highest living stand- 
ard but, at the same time, has one of the 
world's highest crime rates. The American 
people are paying a terrific price for crime, 
which is estimated at twenty billions of 
dollars annually. These alarming costs 
tomc into sharp fcxus when it is realized 
tliat for every dollar spent on education, 
• rime costs $1.16, and for every dollar 
given to churches, crime costs $14. 

Onf Happv Note 

But there is one happy note in the crime 
picture. The increased efficiency of law en- 
forcement, its use of Scientific aids, and in- 
creased training have truly lifted if info a 
respected profession. For the first time in 
seven years, there are current signs that 
the upward trend 4)f crime may level off. 

To meet the ever-present problem of 
lawlessness, law-abiding citizens must 
mobilize to fake the handcuffs off law cn-

forcement. Law enforcement has not yet 
attained the measure of public support it 
justly deser\'es. The law-abiding citizen 
should uphold the cause of law and order 
against the sob sisters who cry, "Shame," 
every time a gangster is shot to death in a 
gun battle. He should not turn his back 
when some law enforcement officer gives 
his life in line of duty or is shot in the back 
by some "mad dog," who frequently has 
escaped from a-dilapidated jail unworthy 
of the name, or has been released by some 
softhearted judge, or has been paroled by 
some maudlin parole board or has been 
pardoned. 

I believe in parole, probation and par- 
don for those who are worthy. I firmly be- 
lieve that parole and probation can be 
made more effective through better selec- 
tion of those to receive their benefits and 
through better super\'ision. In too many 
states, parole is unworthy of its name, and 
probation, rather than rehabilitating of- 
fenders, is an invitation to the dangerous 
philosophy that criminals "can get away 
with their crimes." If anyone has any 
doubts, all he need do is to read the daily 
papers for the accounts of vicious crimes 
committed by persons on parole or pro- 
bation. 

Support For Police 

We need fewer paroles and pardons of 
professional killers, thugs and sex maniacs, 
a situation which convinces too many that 
"crime does pay." We need stronger sup-

port for the police in some of our courts. 
We need an end to the "merry-go-round" 
of justice by which criminals, through 
tricky appeals to credulous judges, manage 
to make law enforcement a mockery. 
Above all, we need swift and certain 
justice. 

When crime occurs, there has been a 
failure somewhere — in the home, the 
church, the school, or the community. But 
with complete cooperation between law- 
abiding citizens and law enforcement, the 
incidence of crime can be materially 
lessened. 

We as representatives of law enforce- 
ment must strive to make it synonymous 
with scrupulous observance of the law as 
well as its strictest enforcement. We in the 
profession of law enforcement must pledge 
anew our determination to uphold our end 
of the partnership and forge ahead to a 
more secure and a safer America. This is 
our common task. _j-^^ p^/-^^ ^^,^^

RADIO AIDS TRAFFIC 

Lloicr teamwork than ever before be- 
tween the State Division of Highways and 
the Cahfornia Highway Patrol in keeping 
state highways open despite snow and ice 
conditions will be possible this winter 
through the use of radio. 

The two state agencies have completed 
installations of receiving equipment in 
Highway Patrol cars, highway maintenance 
vehiiles and lotal headquarters whereby 
the patrolmen and maintenance workers 
will hear each other's messages concerning 
road and traffic conditions, weather, and 
accidents and other emergencies. 

This winter the intercommunication 
radio system will be installed in the Don- 
ner Summit area of US 40 and the Ridge 
Route section of US 99. 

At the same time the Division of High- 
ways announced that its system of state- 
wide road condition reports covering state 
highways subject to adverse weather will 
be extended this winter to cover the entire 
Pacific Coast, by an exchange of informa- 
tion with the States of Washington and 
Oregon. Information on main highways in 
Nevada has been available to California 
on an exchange basis for the past three 
years. ^^^ 

HEAVY FOOT? 

If you are suffering from LMPG (low 
miles per gallon) when you drive your 
car it may be caused by HF (heavy foot). 
One of the major causc-s of poor gasoline 
mileage is jack-rabbit starts, says the Cali- 
fornia State Automobile Association. Un- 
ices there's a real need for it, take off 
easily from stop lights and stop signs and 
see if your gasoline consumption doesn't 
go down. ^ , ^

ALL RECORDS BROKEN 

Record-breaking automobile sales and a further substantial improvement 
in business generally pushed second-quarter taxable transactions subject to the 
California retail sales and use taxes to an all-time quarterly high of $4,476, 
600,000 last year. These sales were 17.4 percent higher than those of the cor- 
responding quarter of 1954 and 3 percent greater than the previous all-time 
record level that was set in the Christmas quarter of 1954, and almost 15 per- 
cent above the figure for the first quarter of 1955. Taxable transactions during 
the whole fiscal year that ended on June 30, 1955, surpassed I6I/2 billion dol- 
lars to set a new record. 

Taxes on self-assessed second-quarter sales amounted to $134,298,00 and 
brought the self-assessed tax revenue for the 1954-55 Fiscal Year to $496,262, 
400. When board-assessed taxes are added to these self-assessments, a fiscal- 
year total of $509,135,454 is derived. This amount almost equalled the total 
collections during the first seven years of this tax. 

Not included in the taxable sales figure for the quarter is an estimated 
$305,000,000 spent in California during the second quarter of 1955 for some 
1,169,600,000 gallons of gasoline and other high-test motor vehicle fuel, 
which is otherwise taxed by the State at 6 cents a gallon, and approximately 
$800,000,000 spent for food consumed off the premises of the sellers. These 
represent the major sales tax exemptions.

should do it more often — in fact a lot of 
the shooters should do it. It's a good old 
California mtom. 

(Just before going to press I learned 
that big, jovial Gus Corneer passed away 
shortly after the matches. What a shock 
as 1 knew Gus for many a year and didn t 
learn of his death until recently.) 

Good Shooting 

Al Heath, one of the old time young 
shooters turned in a very neat possible in 
the .22 timed-fire match with all the shots 
grouped so you could hide them under a 
i^uartcr — both targets. This kind of sur- 
prised me as Al is mainly a .4'> cannon 
shooter and tho he is a splendid shot with 
all three guns I didn't think his .22 work 
was as good as he showed it to be Sunday. 
Nice going Al, now do that with your .45 
and you will really have done sumpin' !

sented at that time with the exception of 
one to "Spike" Spiken, for ten years of 
being in a quandary and to the runner-up, 
Ed DeMalo, for 9 years steady attendance. 
They will receive their awards through the 
mail. This dinner is one of the club's high- 
lights and has a large turnout of shooters 
and families. 

The age of con games is still with us as 
the following should plainly show. Jack 
Ahern, SFPD, was in the market for some 
bullets all molded and ready to load. So he 
approached one of our bullet making kings 
and bargained to purchase several thou- 
sand. He tried to pay with a large bill 
which wasn't accepted by the seller. One 
could hardly blame the seller as the bill 
was dated around I860 and issued by the 
Confederate Union. And Jack a bunco 
detail man ! 

Still on the subject of the Confederacy, 
I was looking to the day when someone 
took a pop at "Dixie" Fambrini. All year 
long he has been wearing a Confederate 
soldier's cap and never failed to appear at 
the matches without it but the expected 
never happened. Not that I was hoping 
for the incident but I was just curious. 
Maybe this present generation has forgot- 
ten about the North-South conflict.

ONE-MAN PATROL 

An outstanding, factual commcntar)- on 
the use of one-man patrol cars was a hi^h- 
liLjht of the recent 62nd Annual Interna- 
tional Association of Chiefs of Police Con- 
ference held in Philidelphia. It was ^iven 
by Cihief Barnard C. Brannon, of the Kan- 
sas City, Mo., Police Department. 

"In 19^3 Kansas City first tested the 
one-man patrol car," said Chief Brannon. 
"We had always operated with two-man 
crews. It was the bc^innin^ of a plan that 
would eventually sec a complete change- 
over from two to one-man patrol. After 
prolonged study and consideration, the 
transition on a city-wide, 24 hour basis 
was effected. 

"Some of the objections to one-man pa- 
trol cars have been: the safety of the 
driver is definitely impaired; it is impos- 
sible to drive and adequately observe at 
the same time; it is impossible to drive at 
hi^h speeds and use the radio or firearms 
effectively; the lone patrolman is inclined 
to overlook suspicious persons and condi- 
tions simply because he is alone; it is diffi- 
cult and hazardous to effect an arrest with 
only one officer, etc. 

"Proponents of one-man cars say one- 
man cars provide equal or better police 
service for less money; more officers are 
available to o|Terate more cars or perform 
other needed duties; police surveillance is 
increased; more cars add to a feeling' of 
public security; the officer is more alert, 
and hence safer, etc."

34-YEARS A CHIEF 

Thirty-four years Chief of Police in the 
same community ! 

That's something of a record — an al- 
most unbelieveable one. 

Yet it's held by Chief of Police Louis 
Belloni of South San Francisco. 

The Chief started in South San Fran- 
cisco as a patrolman thirty-five years ago. 
At that time, to quote the veteran "the 
sidewalks were of wood and the size of 
this department consisted of three men." 

The following year Louis Belloni was 
made Chief, in which capacity he has 
served with distinction for all the inter- 
vening years. 

From a one-room police department, 
South San Francisco now boasts a modern- 
ized police building with a staff of twenty- 
five members. Under Chief Belloni's guid- 
ance there have been developed the most 
recent radio communications, records and 
law enforcement methods. 

"My wife and I have made our home 
in South San Francisco practically all our 
lives", the Chief says. "We have seen the 
department grow with the city until today 
our police force is one of the finest for a 
community of our size. "

THE LIGHT TOUCH 

Another new year is here and with that 
new year a lot of new cars are blossoming 
out on our streets and highways. If you're 
one of the happy owners of these shiny 
new cars, the National Automobile Club 
advises you that you can keep your car in 
tip-top shape by practicing the light touch 
in your driving. 

It's the light touch that does it. It's the 
light touch that will use your power to 
propel your car safely and serenely along 
the highway. But the heavy touch is another 
story. The heavy touch will work to wrack 
and strain your car's frame, clutch, trans- 
mission, differential, wheels, and tires and 
make your car old long before its time. 

Think about stepping down hard on 
that accelerator in terms of torque or the 
twisting power of your motor. Modern 
motors have a high twisting power and the 
car's parts are built to handle this power. 
But step on the accelerator too vigorously 
and the torque rises fast, does some 
wrenching damage. Step on it gently, and 
the torque goes up slowly with the car's 
parts easily absorbing the strain.

brought out as a result of considering these 
aspects are included for the information of 
the membership. 

If wc recognize the fact that juvenile 
delinijucncy will continue to grow, at least 
in pro[x)rtion to population growth, what 
steps should a forward-Uxiking pohce dc- 

[)artmcnt take in order to meet this chal- 
enge? 

As we have previously indicated, this is 
not a problem that has one solution. It 
affects many segments of the community; 
thercfi>re, it is going to require the fullest 
cooperation of all community groups to 
bring about a workable plan to meet and 
solve the situation. We suggest a commit- 
tee composed of representatives of civic, 
government, home, church, school, juve- 
nile court, social welfare agencies, and the 
police. 

The police are in the best position to 
know what sections of the community 
have the highest delint^uency rate and re- 
quire the most police attention. These sec-

tions can be further pinpointed to the 
very neighborhcwd or street where a par- 
ticular problem exists. It is then up to the 
committee composed of representatives of 
the various civic agencies to decide what 
I. an be done to reach the youth and take 
care of the undesirable conditions of that 
neighb«irhood. It is felt that the closest 
level of contact that can be made with the 
delinc|uent affords the best possible chance 
of rehabilitation. Therefore, the formation 
of neighborhood councils under the guid- 
ance of the main committee are desirable. 
Police Gatherinc.s 
From community planning, to which the 
police contribute their share, we proceed 
to the possibility of certain courses of ac- 
tion that can be taken by police depart- 
ments. 

( 1 ) Spot maps or charts can be main- 
tained, either by location of crime, by resi- 
dence of juvenile apprehended, or both, 
to indicate areas where the need exists for 
more intensive police work. This informa- 
tion can also be used by the community in 
its planning. 

(2) The full utilization of policewom- 
en, along with juvenile officers in fre- 
quenting juvenile gathering places in order 
that trouble spots can l)e eliminated before 
they have a chance to cause real difficulty 
and to breed further delinquency. In con- 
junction with this, it is desirable to have a

juvenile cruiser, or cruisers, on the street 
on a twenty-four-hour basis so that trained 
juvenile officers will be immediately avail- 
able. It is most important to discover the 
pre-delinquent child in the early stages 
and this patrol is very effective. 

(3) Explore the possibility of giving 
training to all members of the force in 
standard juvenile procedure . . . some- 
what like that given on the subject of 
traffic control. Or, institute a course of in- 
struction for the supervisory officials of the 
department so that they can pass on infor- 
mation received to subordinates in their 
own units. 

Adult Program 

(4) Also with reference to education 
and training, but out of the realm of 
police work, is the lack of adult educa- 
tional programs for the parents of juve- 
nile delinquents. The Committee has 
noticed that the adult delinquency problem 
parallels the juvenile problem in many 
communities. It is almost futile to correct 
the child and send him back into the very 
conditions which brought about his anti- 
social behavior. This training could be 
either on a voluntary basis or directed by 
the Juvenile Court. However, it is our 
opinion that it should be under one of the 
community agencies rather than the police. 

(5) The juvenile unit can reach the 
youth of the community through elemen- 
tary, junior and senior high school educa- 
tional programs stressing good citizenship,

the functions of the police department, 
and the necessity for law and order in 
society, as well as many other types of ed- 
ucational material. 

(6) A juvenile traffic safety school 
could be started for those committing 
traffic violations. Participation by juvenile 
officers as consultants for youth-sponsored 
and youth-participation programs to help 
develop sound patterns of thinking and 
attitudes among young people. The juve- 
nile unit, if size and time permit, can do 
much to mould the thinking of parents 
and youth as to their responsibilities by 
working with them in community pro- 
grams. 

On The Increase 

These are but a few possibilities that 
can be explored in planning for the future, 
and, as we have stated before, we must 
plan for the future when one considers 
what could be ahead for law enforcement. 
For instance in 1952, 385,000 children 
were charged with some crime or form of 
juvenile delinquency in our Juvenile 
Courts. Last year, it was 435,000. Now, 
one statistician has stated that, at the same 
rate of increase, it will probably be about 
540,000 cases in I960. In addition, while 
the crime rate for adults increased last 
year by 1.9%, it rose almost 8% for those 
under 18 years. Proof enough that plann- 
ing for the future is a must. 

In commenting on the question of what 
should be done with those juveniles bor-

Jcnn^ on adult age who are hardened 
hihitual offenders and have committed 
a serious trimc, it was brought out that 
this may not be a proper matter for the 
police, but should be handled by the 
lourts. The Committee feels, however, that 
law enforcement is directly affected by the 
action taken on this type of offender and 
therefore must interest itself in seeking a 
solution in conjunction with the courts. 

Certainly, it is as much concern to pro- 
tect the citizens of the community from the 
vicious actions of a juvenile criminal as it 
IS to try to rehabilitate the delinquent. 
Therefore, when it is evident that rehabil- 
itation has failed, either the jxilice should 
recommend waiver to adult court or the 
juvenile court should remand jurisdiction 
on its own. Of course, various jurisdic- 
tions may have laws governing such a 
situation; however, in the event there arc 
none, the police department should take 
an active part in seeking legislation that 
will permit such action. It is felt that, if 
the juvenile has failed to respond to court 
guidance and probationary approaches, it 
may be reasonably assumed that a further 
juvenile court treatment would be futile. 
The juvenile delinquent of such stature 
may respond to punishment, for it is evi- 
dent that this is the only treatment he 
understands. 

Probation System 

But what of the juvenile who comes to 
the attention of the police for a minor 
offense ''•Should police engage in the prac- 
tice of an unofficial probation system, 
wherein the juvenile and or his parents 
report [xriodically to the juvenile unit.-' 

Although the Committee recognizes the 
f.Kt that there are some small communities, 
far removed from court facilities, that prac- 
tice probation in some form, it was unani- 
mous in its decision that probation systems 
should remain in the hands of trained pro- 
bation officers, distinctly separate from the 
law enforcement lield. 

This leads us into the question. To 
what extent should police engage in the 
s(Kial aspects of treatment and correction, 
as well as following up cases of juvenile 
delinquents.' 

I am sure we all rcxognizc the fact that 
the most desirable manner in which to 
iiandle juvenile casi-s, insofar as the police 
arc concerned, would be to refer all cases 
to Juvenile Court where trained psychia- 
trists, psychologists, clinical ex|x-rts, parole 
.md probation officers and the scxial wel- 
l.irc servicc-s so closely related thereto, can 
k utilized in the treatment and correction 
of each individual case. This, however, is 
the ideal set up, and is usually the excep- 
tion rather than the rule. 

Police Fill Gap 

If the police, especially in the larger 
cities, were to refer every case coming to

their attention to the Juvenile Court, the 
Court in most cases could not cope with 
the work load and would not be' able to 
function properly. Therefore, it falls to 
the police to fill this gap, as it has in the 
recreational field with its boys' clubs, 
junior sheriffs, etc., by providing a service 
that rightfully belongs in an area other 
than law enforcement. We must remem- 
ber, however, that this is a matter in which 
we are directly concerned, for if these 
delinquents are not handled properly, they 
will eventually be our future criminals 
whom we will be fighting the remainder 
of their adult lives. 

To meet this need, many police depart- 
ments have established within their juve- 
nile unit, a system of screening and review- 
ing cases for the purpose of determining 
which should be sent to Juvenile Court, 
which should be referred to social and 
community agencies and which can be dis- 
posed of by the unit itself through hear- 
ing and counsel with parents, juvenile 
and witnesses. By practice, however, only 
those cases of a minor nature, usually by 
first offenders who admit their guilt, are 
disposed of strictly by the juvenile unit. 

We do want to stress, however, that this 
should only be a stopgap measure and this 
function should be within the province of 
the Juvenile Court. Also, whether a depart- 
ment adopts this practice, depends to a 
large measure upon the availability of 
manpower to assume it. 

Need Special Unit 
Regarding the question of manpower, 
the Committee also gave serious thought 
to the percentage or proportion of the 
police force that should be devoted to the 
juvenile problem in relation to the many 
other problems now facing law enforce- 
ment. 

Every police officer, as part of his basic 
training, should be instructed as to his 
responsibility in preventing juvenile delin- 
quency; have knowledge of how to han- 
dle offenses involving juveniles; and be 
alert to situations which might contribute 
to delinquency. This does not answer the 
question, however, and it is now a recog- 
nized fact that a specialized unit, especially 
in the larger cities, to handle youth work, 
is a must. 

Insofar as the actual size of such a unit, 
some administrators have advocated not 
more than five percent of total force, 
others, five to ten percent, and still others, 
a percentage of the force in ratio to the 
percentage of delinquent juvenile popula- 
tion. We feel, however, that no set per- 
centage can be established as a criteria to 
determine the number of officers to be 
assigned to juvenile work, as it depends 
to a large extent on the delinquency prob- 
lem in any particular community. Should 
a given municipality be pressed with an

overwhelming juvenile challenge, then 
they should be governed accordingly in 
the allocation of their men in the field of 
juvenile control. 

Act, Don t Talk 

Wc cannot lose sight of the fact that 
our manpower is definitely limited, and 
specialized units such as juvenile, traffic, 
vice, etc.. could, if permitted to expand 
^Tcater than their relation to our other 
problems, utilize the largest portion of our 
forte. Therefore, the juvenile problem 
must be surveyed in the light of the entire 
l.iw enforcement picture. 

The figure has been released that three 
ptrient of the juvenile population of our 
country is delinquent. While we have an 
important duty to this minority, we cannot 
concentrate on this group to an extent that 
it will be detrimental to our work in other 
fields of law enforcement. Yet, the Com- 
mittee feels that now, the people through- 
out the country have passed the stage of 
merely talking about the juvenile delin- 
quency. They are now acting. The United 
States Senate is continuing its investiga- 
tion into conditions causing delinquency; 
lities are organizing community groups 
on a full time b.isis to help meet the situa- 
tion; and law enforcement is stressing 
training and improved methods of deal- 
ing with juveniles. Several of the cities 
represented by the members of this Com- 
mittee have already felt the cflfects of this 
concentrated battle against delinquency by 
reporting substantial reductions during the 
past year. This type of concerted effort on 
the part of government, citizens, and law 
enforcement, will surely produce serious 
inroads into the present and future delin- 
quency trend. 

In conclusion, we reiterate some of our 
findings: 

1. Police departments should be for- 
ward-lix)king and make plans for the fu- 
ture in preparation for a growing rate of 
juvenile delinquency. 

2. Some means should be derived for 
trying in .idult court those hardened juve- 
niles nearing adult age who have commit- 
ted a serious crime. 

^. Probation systems should not be 
entered into by the police. 

•i. Where Juvenile Court facilities are 
not adequate or do not exist to handle all 
cases of juveniles coming to the attention 
of the jxilice. the police should screen and 
review ca.ses for proper disposition to ease 
the burden of the Court. 

">. A set percentage of the force assigned 
to the juvenile unit is unrealistic, and 
should be determined by the problem con- 
fronting each individual community.

HISTORIC OLD SHIP 



Out at the western end of the Golden 
Gate Park in San Francisco, a small fish- 
ing smack, surrounded by a high iron 
fence, sits facing the sea. 

It was in this small fishing smack, the 
Gjoa, just 70 feet long and a little more 
than 21 feet wide, that Roald Amundsen 
and his crew of six did what hardy mari- 
ners had tried fo do and failed to do for 
several hundred years — sailed through the 
Northwest Passage, across the top of 
North America, and down to Alaska. 

Near midnight of June 16, 1903, ac- 
cording to the National Automobile Club, 
Amundsen and his crew set out from Nor- 
way on an adventure that was to involve 
long campings in the Arctic night, sled 
trips over the endless snow and ice, mo- 
ments when less than a foot of water sep- 
arated the keel of the Gjoa from the rocks 
at the bottom of the sea, and a constant 
struggle against the elements. 

More than three years later, on October

19, 1906, Amundsen sailed into San Fran- 
cisco Bay and dropped anchor just of? 
Sausalito. Two days later the people of San 
Francisco learned of his presence among 
them, had his little ship towed to the foot 
of Mission Street, and drove Amundsen 
and his crew up Market Street in fine car- 
riages drawn by dapple grey hones. After 
long hours of celebration, they moved the 
Gjoa to Mare Island, where it rode at 
anchor for three years. 

In 1909, the Norwegians of California 
and of Norway bought the Gjoa from 
Roald Amundsen and gave it as a gift to 
the city of San Francisco. On July 5, of 
that year, the little ship was towed through 
the surf at the beach, and moved on rollers 
to where it sits today. Some fifteen thou- 
sand people were on hand to see it settle 
down and more than a thousand of these 
made amateur and professional attempts 
to record the event on film. 

Through the decades the Gjoa has 
stood there looking out to sea.

NEVER TRUST A CHECK PASSER 

(A Trik Story) 
B) 
Lm L. SiANiEV, M.I)., Former Chief Surgeim. San Queniin, Cal.. AfTeuionaielv lallcd 'San Qu 



A lonfcssion is ^ix)d fi)r the souL And 
it is ^ood to admit that attcr more than 
forty years in dealing; with law offenders 
and knowing them intimately as one diKS 
during (his long association, he may be 
taken to town.' Peace officers know what 
I mean. Unfortunately I do not have a 
camera eye. Many of the thousands of men 
whom I treated at San Quentin have com- 
pletely gone out of my mind. They, of 
course, would recognize me on the street. 
But I would not distinguish them from the 
hundreds of other people with whom I 
haveiome in contact. 

It injures one's pride a little to know 
that he has been bilked, deceived and im- 
posed upon. It is not consoling or com- 
forting to an old hand in the penal game, 
to realize how gullible he was, how easily 
he was mislead, duped and tricked. But 
one must swallow his pride, and although 
it may be painful, admit that one can not 
know everything, and that he may be sub- 
ject to imposition, and more or less humili- 
ation, at the hands of infamy. 

Bunny, my wife, and I together with 
Betty and Epe, executive of a radio broad- 
casting network, had come to the far- 
fameci Apple Valley Resort to Spend "a 
few days of fun and relaxation, basking 
in the ijesert sun, lolling at the clear, cool 
swimming |-)Ool and dining at the sump- 
tuous and well appointed inn." 

Who Ark Thi:y? 

Part of the fun in vacationing at a sum- 
mer resort is sizing up the guests. One 
wc»nders just what that well dressed wo- 
nwn seated alone docs for a living. Who 
is that dashing cowlvi) with high bcxits, 
decorated shirt and broad sombrero' Is he 
the real thing, or is he a movie star or 
drugstore vacjuero' And arc those nrcffy 
girls Miss .Something from Somcwnere.'' 
And what are those Air I'orcc oHicers do- 
ing away from their base.' And is that 
middle aged woman a Lonely Heart leak- 
ing for romance away out here on the 
desert.'' Of course, there arc scores of 
other interesting people who parade to the 
bar, on the tennis court, in the patios, on 
(he dance floor and in (he dining rcxim, 
who arouse one's curiosity by their dress, 
their manners, their tigurcs and their pctu- 
liandes. 

On the evening of our first day at the 
Inn we had a commanding view of all 
those guests who came in for dinner. We 
were not far from the door near a broad 
window. With a highball or two and a 



delicious dinner wc felt ourselves on top 
of (he world. And amongs( ourselves we 
could observe and remark upon the other 
guests, who coming in attracted our atten- 
tion. I suspect these same people about 
whom wc might make some remark, com- 
plimentary or otherwise, were doing the 
same about us. 

Thhv Attract 
Arriving near (he end of the dinner was 
a couple who attrac(ed our attention. They 
had a table to themselves over near the 
wall. She was trim and fashionably dressed. 
What was most attractive about her was a 
black coif which fitted snugly across her 
forehead and flowed Icxjsely dow n her back 
to the waist, ex|X)sing a well groomed 
brush of hair. She did not seem to be very 
happy. There was no smile on her pretty 
face and she gazed about blankly and dis- 
interestedly. This we remarked, but just- 
ified it with the thought that perhaps the 
long ride across the desert to the resort had 
been tiring and wearisome. 

He, on the other hand, seemed placid 
and mild, even resigned to his mate's lack 
of geniality and warmth of disposition. He 
would pass for a young executive or office 
man, round fated, intelligent, alert and 
dressed in sport attire, entirely acceptable 
in this "dress as you please" all year 
round resort hotel. I merely surmised that 
they were two sympathetic souls who had 
come on one of those "all expense vaca- 
tions, seven days, seven nights, eighteen 
meals in cool restful rooms with private 
bath, including food, the finest you have 
ever eaten (breakfast in bed if you wish)

Our party, after dinner, lingered at the

youth, in the cow country of northern San

and country girls swirled to the rhythm ol

the fiddle, the cornet and the big bass viol. 
The couple which we had observed and 
commented about soon retired after their 
rather doleful evening meal. 

But the next day, when we went to the 
pool for our dip and sun bath, we found 
the masculine member of this couple seat- 
ed alone under one of those huge blue 
and white plastic umbrellas. He was dress- 
ed in swim suit and on the table by him 
was a bottle of ale. 

From Marin 

He bowed to me and calling me by 
name introduced himself as Tom Berry. 
"I'm from Marin County," he said. "Of 
course you know the Berrys of Ross". I 
did not know him nor did I recall that I 
had ever seen him before. But I must con- 
fess my remembrance of names and per- 
sons is not so good anyway. 

"Yes, I do know some of the Berry 
family, but I do not remember having met 
you before," I responded, only mildly 
interested. 

By this time Bunny had joined us. I 
introduced her to Mr. Berry and she pre- 
sented him to Betty and Epe when they 
came to the pool. After this I went for 
a hike to a nearby hill top to survey the 
desert and encircling mountains. 

After luncheon Bunny burst into our 
cabin where I had taken a short siesta and 
exclaimed with delight, "Yoii know that 
Mr. Berry you introduced to us this morn- 
ing. He is from Marin County. He knows 
all about you. He has read your book 
"Men at Their Worst". He and his wife 
have just come here from Palm Springs. 
They are on vacation. He says he is with 
a big oil company. He seems to be an 
awful nice man. 'Wanted to buy us drinks 
and everything. Don't you remember 
him? " 

I had to confess that I did not. I had

not often associated with big oil men. 
about all the oil men I knew were the 
senice station attendants. 

His Stepson 

On this afternoon our party was aug- 
mented by the arrival of Dave, Bunny's 
son, and his sweetheart Hazel, who had 
been one of the stars of the Ice Follic-s. 
Dave was district manager for a large tire 
company for all of metropolitan Los An- 
geles. He is a likeable chap, although my 
stepson. He is about thirty and served on 
transports in the last war. He holds a first 
engineering license in steam on all seas. 
He has been about a lot and seen and 
known many people in his travels. 

Of course, I introduced him to Tom. 
They were of about the same age and 
seemed to hit it off right from the start. 
Soon it was Dave this and Tom that. And 
they got to be auite friendly. Tom seemed 
to take particular pains to be nice to us, 
especially Bunny, Betty and Epe. Mrs. 
Berry did not appear on the scene this 
afternoon. Tom said she had an appoint- 
ment with the hair dresser. 

Because of our early return to the north 
the next day, we did not see much more 
of Tom and practically nothing of his 
wife who seemed to stay fairly close to 
her room. She had come for a rest, Tom 
volunteered. We gave them little more 
thought, merely regarding them as a suc- 
cessful young couple, whose path had 
crossed ours. He must be well-to-do, other- 
wise he would not have chosen this place. 
And no doubt he had good connections for 
he told us so. 

He's in Jaii. 

Three days later Bunny, at home, re- 
ceived a long distance phone call from 
Dave in Los Angeles. "Bun " he talked 
excitedly. "Do you remember that yiJung 
fellow Tom Berry we met at Apple Val- 
ley last week? "Well, he is in jail. He 
has a prison record as long as your arm. 
They got him for passing worthless checks. 
The police thougnt Hazel and I were ac- 
complices. You know we were with him 
and his wife a lot after you left. I cant 
tell you much about him now over the 
phone. He did time at Quentin under the 
name of Mervyn Baker. Tell Dik, and 
have him look up his record. I'll tell you 
more about him and his escapades later 
on. Goodbye'". 

Bunny phoned to mc at my office in 
San Quentin. It did not fake long to get 
the picture of the gentleman in tjuestion 
and to have his full ri-cord before me. It 
was indeed, revealing. He had come to 
San Quentin in June 19<-<. That wis when 
I was away in the war on Military Leave. 
He was given parole in April 19^0. When 
I told Tom Berry, Mcr>yn Baker and 
possessor of numerous other aliases, scion 



of a wealthy family, officer in a big oil 
company, that I thought I had met him 
before in Marin County little did I think 
that the place I met him was San Quentin. 
But it evidently was. He remembered. I 
didn't. 

Good Spender 
When we again saw Dave and Hazel, 
they had a lot to tell us about Tom Berr) 
and the happenings of the few days fol- 
lowing our meeting at the desert resort. 
They had lingered on a day and night 
after our departure. They had made few 
contacts other than the Berrys. Tom seem- 
ed to be such a nice fellow. And Mrs. 
Berry was tjuiet and reserved, a girl Hazel

could like. Tom was a good spender, 
as befitted a big oil company executive. 
"Could all go on expense account ", he 
explained. A very enjoyable Saturday night 
was had by the two couples, dining, danc- 
ing and moderately wining. 

It was on Sunday morning that the 
Berry couple felt that they should get 
back to Los Angeles. Tom had, in the 
meantime, struck up an acquaintance with 
a middle-aged widow whom we had ob- 
served at the Inn. She was always expen- 
sively attired. But for the most part she 
was alone and dined usually by herself. 
She seemed to have few friends and was 
reluctant to putting herself forward. But 
Tom had ingratiated himself to her as 
he had to our party. She was impressed 
by this gallant young man. She told him 
that she expected to return to the metropo- 
lis on Sunday by car. Tom gladly volun- 
teered to drive. He and his wife had ex- 
pected to fly. His own Cadillac was in 
the shop momentarily for repairs. Tom 
would be glad indeed to help her out by 
acting as chauffeur. "Yes, indeed, it will 
be a great pleasure" he beamed graciously. 

They Quarreled 

The Sunday morning departure was de- 
layed. All had overslept. Early rising was 
for the peasants. Dave and Hazel were at 
the pool when Tom sleepily appeared. He 
was not too happy. He and his bride had 
had a little quarrel that morning. He had 
been curt to her. "So, Dave, why not have 
a little eye-opener while the ladies are 
packing". "It was only a little honeymoon 
misunderstanding". Tom became confi- 
dential. 

"Yes we are on our honeymoon. Just 
been married a week. Met this girl in San 
Diego. She looked good to me. We flew 
to Arizona and were married." This and 
more too came out over drinks at the bar. 
Tom let Dave know that he was the son 
of the president of the Continental Oil Co. 
He had plenty of money and the old man 
would give him more. 

Lunch time came, and went. The two 
ladies, finished with their packing, waited 
in their rooms momentarily expecting the 
bridegroom to call for them. But, at the 
bar, Tom became more jovial, friendly and 
hospitable. He radiated joy and good will. 

During the afternoon a half a dozen 
aviators from a nearby Air Field breezed 
into the bar. They were out for a Sunday 
afternoon of fun and relaxation. Tom 
soon made their acquaintance. Yes, he had 
been in the air service himself, he said. 
Knew many of the top brass. And he 
treated all around, at the same time letting 
them know that his oil company furnished 
much of the fuel for their jets. 

Plenty of Dough 
And other guests joined in. They were 



not backward in coming forward to meet 
and be friendly with this wealthy young 
man. "What a fine fellow he is. And he 
has plenty of the mazoola. His pockets 
are full of money. Guess he must have 
an unlimited expense account", were some 
of the remarks Dave overheard. 

And according to Dave, Tom would 
not let anyone buy the drinks. They were 
on him and his company. Soon the news 
got about that a spend happy young mil- 
lionaire was on the loose. 

Automobile salesman, and real estate 
operators in adjoining acreage, hastened 
to the scene from adjoining towns and 
neighborhoods like yellowjackets attracted 
to a venison barbecue. They wanted to 
get in on the play. 

As Tom gradually warmed to the alco- 
holic influence, he became a prey to some 
of these friendly souls. Yes, Tom did need 
a new automobile. He meant to turn in 
his old Cadillac anyway. The Pontiac sales-

n;.m was a gcxxi fellow, and persuasive. 
Buvs AN Auto 
Could you deliver me a Pontiat by 
tomorrow? Tom apologetically asked. 

"Can do" was the eager resjxjnse. 

"Here is a chc-ck for a hundred dollars. 
The rest will tome tomorrow. Let's have 
a drink on it. I'll pick it un tomorrow. " 
And Tom slightly flushed Dy the desert 
air, and a little too much distilled cactus 
juice, waved evcr)t)nc to the bar. There 
was considerable back slapping and convi- 
viality as the stimulated afternoon wore on 
toward evening. 

The Icxal Chamber of Commerce soon 
had a fast talker on the scene. The Cham- 
ber was selling tickets at a dollar a throw 
for a raffle of some choice residential lots 
out in the God given sun drenched, balmy 
aired desert. Tom was imprc-ssed by the 
description of the lots. He took a hundred. 
Thc-se he distributed with a free hand to 
his newly made friends. And then there 
was more bending of the elbow with, 
"Prosit, CcH)d Luck, Mud in Your Eye, 
and Happy Days to this new comer who 
would add much to the community should 
he decide to take up residence here. 

Little Tipsv 

The manager of the inn succumbed to 
Toms charming manner and he, himself, 
got a little tipsy too. Placing his arm 
around Toms neck in friendly embrace, 
he declared himself to the gathering multi- 
tude. "Tom, you're a great fellow. We like 
to have people like you come to our place. 
You are a good aj for the Inn. Just to 
show you how much we appreciate your 
being here, the management wants you to 
Ix- our guest for another day. Won't cost 
you a cent. "Glad to have you, Tom. Glad 
to have you". 

By this time Dave and Hazel felt that 
they must get back to town. Monday was 
a business day. Tom was still going strong 
and perhaps a little stronger when they 
bid him Adieu. He surely was the life of 
the party. 

"I'll be seein' you, Dave. I like you. 
I think I can do something for you in 
a business way ", Tom graciously waved. 
I've made reservations for all of us here 
at this resort for next Saturday night when 
Ted Frito opens. Dont disappoint me. 
CtcK)dhye Hazel, goodbye Dave old boy," 
Tom added as the)- drove away.

and Hazel departed the narrator docs not

relate. But apparently the Good Time By 
All went far into the night. 

Turns Up Again 

The scene now shifts to the apartment 
of Dave at Malibu Beach overlooking the 
broad Pacific. The time is ten o'clock on 
Tuesday morning. Dave had just finished 
his breakfast, tidied his bachelor quarters 
and was just about ready to shove off for a 
day of business in the bustling, smoggy 
down town area. 

There is a knock on the door. The door 
is opened and there stands Tom Berry, a

broad smile on his face and a friendly 
greeting on his lips. 

"Just got in, Dave boy. The misssus and 
I are staying at a motel just up the shore. 
Ring up Hazel. Have her come over. 'We 
want you two to come to lunch with us." 

Of course, Dave invited him in. Business 
down town would have to wait. For here 
was an important visit and guest. Coffee 
was brewed and perhaps a little libation 
was concocted. Before time for luncheon, 
many words of conversation filled that 
little apartment by the sea. Tom had the 
full run of the house while Dave was busy 
in the kitchen. He wandered about admir- 
ing the few pictures, the furniture and the 
view of the water from the big window. 
Offered A Job 

"Dave," Tom offered, "You don't care 
a hell of a lot about that stinking job you 
have now. Why in hell don't you come 
with our company ? My old man can fix it 
up for you. 'Would you be interested in 
personnel? Or would you like something 
in the technical or development? We want 
alert, young men like you. And you know 
marine engineering. You have a fine per- 
sonality and can get along with the fellows 
all right. That's the kind of men we want. 
I'll phone the boss. He is spending a few 
days up at Santa Barbara at the Biltmore. 
Won't be any trouble at all. Glad to do it. 
The old man ought to start you out at say 
seven fifty a month with car and expense 
account." Tom went on and on. Dave was 
really impressed. 

By this time Hazel had joined the two.

Jaiiudry - Fehruary 19'' 



They picked up Mrs. Berry at the motel 
and proceeded to a popular seaside resort 
where Dave and Hazel had occasionally 
dined before. 

The maitre D bowed to them, and with 
mincing step led them to a table near a 
window overlooking the ocean. He was 
one of those queer, effeminate, sensitive 
creatures, e^•er endeavoring to be charming 
and ingratiating as he went about girlishly 
swinging his little posterior. Oddly enough 
his name was Clarence. He was just the 
(hweetest thing." 

Picks Up Tab 

The luncheon was unhurried. Conversa- 
tion was long. Dave could sec himself 
already in the oil business with the glow- 
ing future which Tom pictured for him. 
Coffee was lingered over. Tom. as usual, 
was the first to reach and get the tab for 
the luncheon. 

He withdrew from his pocket a check 
for one hundred dollars and presented it 
to Clarence. 

The timid little Maitre D, l(X)king at the 
paper, said he was unable to cash a check 
of that size. Tom assumed great anger at 
the rebuff. "Why, don't you know I am 
Tom Berry, son of the president of Conti- 
nental ? Just why can't you cash this 
check!* ■ 

'Mr. Berr), ' the frightened Clarence 
stammered, "I would dearly love to accom- 
modate you, Mr. Berr)-, but I do not have

that much money on hand right now. Im

the luncheon. 

Dave's business on this day suffered. But 
what the hell did he care.-" Wasn't he prom- 
ised a seven hundred and fifty dollar per 
month job.'' And wasn't he looked upon 
with great favor by his friend, the son of 
the president .■* 

The remainder of the afternoon was 
spent in Dave's seaside apartment with 
more conversation and pleasant company 
of the ladies. It was a restful, but at the 
same time exciting way to enjoy an aftcr- 
ncx)n with complete camaraderie. 
Visit Swank Spot 

As dinner time drew near, Tom insisted 
that they all go out to dine at one of the 
swank sp«>ts along the lieach. The dinner 
was excellent. But Dave noticed that Tom 
had developed a rather uneasy feeling. He 
was somewhat furti\e and he was curt and 
snappy to his bride. He was ill at ease. 

Tom reached for and obtained the 
"adiccion". Here again he offered a one 
hundred dollar check. The head waiter, 
this time a big athletic type in contrast to 
Clarence, stated that he would not cash the 
check without proper identification. Tom 
flared up and said it was an insult to have 
to be identified for such a small sum. "Call 
(he owner, call the manager if you want, 
Tom insisted. 

The proprietor was summoned. 

"Mr. Chason, " Tom indignantly pro 
tested, "Isn't it a joke that this character 
will not cash this measly check.' Why, I 
come here often. You know me. I'm Tom 
Berry of the oil company. "

disdainful look, apologized profusely and 
handed over the change in greenbacks. 

While this argument was going on, Mrs. 
Tom was seen to excuse herself from the 
table and absent herself for a short time. 
All this argument was very embarrassing to 
Dave and Hazel. But soon thereafter Dave 
noticed, out of the corner of his eye, two 
men entering in a rather casual manner. 
They caught Tom's eye. One of them gave 
him the finger, indicating that they wished 
to hold conversation with him outside, 
away from curious eyes. 

Dave, much concerned, followed them 
out. There, in the ante room he saw the 
spectacle of the son of the president of the 
oil company being frisked by two plain 
clothes men. They showed Dave their 
badges to let him know it was not a hold 
up or kidnapping. 

Police Record 

Tom was bundled into the police wagon 
and unceremoniously escorted to the Hoose 
Gow at Santa Monica, without having the 
opportunity to bid farewell to his bride. 
Dave and the two girls were asked to fol- 
low to the bastille. There they were ques- 
tioned at length about their connections 
with the wealthy oil scion. The police soon 
found them innocent of any wrong doing. 
They cleared the wife. Within a short time 
they brought forth the police record of 
Tom Berry, alias Mervyn Baker and num- 
erous other monickers under which he had 
gone in his check passing activities. 

Dave's eyes almost fell out of his head 
when he saw on the table, the numerous 
articles which had been frisked from Tom's 
pockets. There was Dave's check book, 
some of his jewelry and some private 
papers which the slicker had filched from 
Dave while enjoying the hospitality of his 
Malibu Beach apartment. 

Next day the Santa Monica press under 
headline "Forgery Arrest Ends Honey- 
moon" had this to say: 

"The honeymoon ended here early today 
for forgery suspect William Baker, 39, 
and his blonde wife of two weeks. The 
parting of the ways came in Santa Monica 
Police headquarters where Baker, dubbed 
by police "the man of forty aliases " was 
booked on a forgery charge and his wife, 
who said she was unaware of Baker's rep- 
utation with the police, tossed her blonde 
curls and went home to mother. 

40 Aliases 

"Night Police Chief Earl Reinbold said 
fingerprint comparisons showed Baker to 
be a man wanted under 40 aliases on for- 
gery and bad check charges throughout 
California. Baker, who claims to be the San 
Francisco executive of an oil company, 
indignantly denies the charge. 

"Reinbold and officer Ralph Felix ar- 
rested Baker in a cafe at 3 1 1 Santa Monica

Boulevard at about 1 :30 this morning. The 
officers were called to the cafe to investi- 
gate a man attempting to cash a 5100 
check. When they asked Baker if he had 
written other checks recently, he denied it, 
the officers reported. But later. Baker s 
blonde wife told police that Baker had 
written checks for sizable amounts sm^e 
their honeymoon began in Yuma, Arizona, 
two weeks ago. 

She told officers that she had been "con- 
cerned' about the check writing is time 
wore on. Baker s check book had paid their 
way through the best hotels in San Diego, 
Apple Valley and Los Angeles, she said. 
It was then that Reinbold decided to check 
the mans fingerprints against the Los An- 
geles Police records. 

"Back came repwrt that Baker was want- 
ed in Los Angeles under the name of Wil- 
liam Rcardon. He was wanted elsewhere 
in the state, tiK), but under aliases too num- 
erous to list, the, officer said. 

Bec.ins To Worry 

"Mrs. Baker, the twenty-five year old 
Los Angeles blonde, told Reinbold she met 
Baker in San Diego several weeks ago. 
Two weeks ago she flew to Yuma with 
him, and they were married. She said she 
did not suspect he was a fugitive then. But 
as Baker exhausted one check book after 
another, she began to worr)'. Police said 
the) would not bring charges against her. 
The louplc have been living at Las Tunas 
Isle Motel. 

"When the Bakers were picked up early 
this morning tht^ were having a late snack 
with a Malibu couple who said they met 
the honeymoon couple at Apple Valley 
resort a wc-ck ago. Officers said an incident 
recited by the Malibu couple was fairly 
typical of other methods listed in Baker's 
police record. The Bakers, accompanied 
by the Malibu couple, visited a smart ccxk- 
tail lounge in Apple Valle)'. Baker pur- 
chased $1()<) worth of $1 raffle tickets, 
offered by the Apple Valley Chamber of 
Commerce on residential lots in the re-sort. 
He paid for the tickets with a $100 check 
and he distributed the tickets to the lounge 
patrons. Now what :* The recipients 
promptly signed the ducats and turned 
them back to the Chamber of Commerce, 
keeping the stubs."

STOP EXCESSIVE NOISE 



The elimination of excessive noise has 
long been recognized by industrial safety 
experts as an important factor in the re- 
duction of accidents. This elementary fact 
has not yet been properly recognized by 
many in the motor vehicle safety lield. 

The Swiss, plagued by a vast increase in 
motor vehicles since the end of World 
War II, reasoned that the wide variation 
of annoying sounds was too great for 
humans long to withstand. "Let's do some- 
thing about this infernal noise," the peo- 
ple demanded. 

Their obliging legislature acted prompt- 
ly, and today the tiny country has devel- 
oped model standard for all t)'pes of 
motor vehicles that ought to be adopted by 
every other civilized place — especially San 
Francisco. In this cit)- there are more than 
275,000 motor vehicles with degrees and 
volumes of tones calculated to deafen or 
distract the most placid individual. 

You will (ind no "special exhaust pipes 
that sing; not a single fluted pipe; no nut- 
ter pipes; no house -shaking basso pro- 
fundo, no tenor, no shrill sopranos on the 
streets or roads of Switzerland.

;asoline-pow- 
livered from 
i below these 
'ould require I 



of "maximum permissible sound levels for 
ever)' category of motor vehicle " as a "prac- 
tical" control. 

Sound levels are measured with a stand- 
ard sound level meter placed at a distance 
of 23 feet lateral to the vehicle in an open 
field with the vehicle operating a full 
power on a test stand. 

American manufactured gasoline-pow 
ered cars and trucks — as del 
the factor)' — have noise levels 
permissible maximums and would

vehicles that have been tinkered with 
that have worn-out mufflers — which can ! 
easily recognized by all but a complcii 
deaf person, should be removed from •: 
streets until they can pass a test similar 
that used by the Swiss. 

And when the anti-noise ordinance 
rewritten it should especially single m 
the promiscuous horn-blower with a thri 
of fine or jail for flagrant violations.

MORNIN' ON THE DESERT 

Morniii' on the desert, and the u ind is blou in' free, 

And it's ours, jest for the breathin'. so let's fill up. you and me. 

So more stuffy cities, uhere you hate to pay to breathe, 

Where the helpless human creatures mote and throng and striie and seethe. 

Mornin' on the desert, and the air is like a wine, 

And It seems like all creation has been made for me and mine. 

So house to stop my vision, save a neighbor's miles away. 

And the little dobe shanty that belongs to me and May. 

Lonesome? Sot a minute! Why I've got these mountains here. 

That was put there jest to please me. with their blush and frown and cheer 

'they're waiting when the summer sun gets too sizzlin' hot. 

An' we jest go campin' in 'em with a pan and coffee pot. 

Mornin' on the desert — / can smell the sagebrush smoke. 

I hate to see it burnin', but the land must sure be broke. 

.Ain't it jest a pit) that wherever man may live. 

He tears up much that's beautiful that the good God has to give! 

Sagebrush ain't so pretty?" Well, all eyes don't see the same. 
Have you ever saw the moonlight turn it to a silvery flame? 
An' that greasewood thicket yonder — Well, it smells jest awful sweet 
When the night wind has been shakin' it — for its smell is hard to beat. 
Lonesome? Well. I guess not! I've been lonesome in a town. 
But I sure do love the desert with its stretches wide and brown. 
All day through the sagebrush here the wind is blowin' free, 
An' it's ours jest for the breathin' , so let's fill up. you and me. 

( Found written on the door of an old cabin in Southern Nevada and printed here by 
"Molorland." magazine of the California State Automobile Association, in its salute to 
our sister state Nevada. ) 

GAS TAX RETURNS 

Sacramento. — Gross revenues from the 
state tax on September wholesale distribu- 
tions of gasoline and other hi^htest motor 
vehicle fuel amounted to $23,444,795, ac- 
cording to fibres released today by George 
R. Reilly, First District Member of the 
State Board of Ecjualization. 

After refunds during September of 
51,610,774 by Controller Robc-rt C. Kirk- 
wood to purchasers of fuel for nonhigh- 
way use, there remained $21,834,021 for 
construction and maintenance of state 
highways and local roads and streets. 

The gross revenue of more than $234 
million and the taxable gallonage of al- 
most 391 million gallons producing these 
revenues were 71/1 percent higher than the 
corresponding figures for September 1954. 
Total distributions of taxable high-test 
fuel for the first nine months of this year 
amounted to 3.4 billion gallons and sur- 
passed last years record total for the com- 
parable period by 61/. percent. 

Not included in these figures were over 
121 million gallons of high-test motor 
vehicle fuel distributed tax-free during 
5>eptember, mainly in the form of exports, 
sales to the United States Armed Forces 
for use in watercraft or airplanes, to li- 
censed dealers in butane ana other lique- 
fied petroleum gases, and to licensed air- 
lines and aircraft manufacturers.

TEAMSTER DRIVE RESULTS 



Final tabulations show that more than 
550,000 motorists in Northern California 
and residents of that area signed "courtesy 
pledges" during the recently completed 
Teamsters-Green Cross Safet)' Crusade, 
reports general chairman Joseph J. Diviny. 

"We consider the cost of conducting 
this safety crusade and the time spent well 
worth while," Diviny said. 

"Each of the people who signed a 
pledge to observe the common sense rules 
of safety and to make courtesy his code 
will be a little better and safer driver for 
having done so. Courtesy in driving is said 
to be contagious and we have every hope 
that this 550,000 will prove this statement 
to be true," he added. 

Twenty-eight of the courtesy pledge 
signers won the awards donated to the 
Safety Crusade by public spirited firms 
and groups. 

Top award, a 1956 Ford sedan, went 
to Gail Kenneaster, 1170 Clovis Avenue, 
Clovis, California. 

Merle D. Robinson, 465 South Nevada 
Street, Fallon, Nevada, selected the round- 
trip to Hawaii on the Lurline with an 11- 
day stay at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. 

Third prize winner was Melba Hawkins, 
924 Billings Blvd., San Leandro, who 
chose a trans-Pacific trip on an American 
President Lines liner. 

Fourth prize winner was C. O. Ridges, 
220 Clark Street, Crockett, Calif., who 
selected a two-week stay at the Arizona 
Twightlighter, a Phoenix, Ariz., resort. 

Nelson Byrd, 350 Sunshine Drive, Con- 
cord, Calif., selected a three-day stay at El 
Rancho Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada resort, 
v/ith a round-trip by TWA Airlines from 
San Francisco. 

Sixth award winner was Landis Mc 
Gauhey, 683-40th Street, Richmond, who 
chose a Wizard Deepfreeze. 

Anne Gilmer, 2011 Sacramento Street, 
San Francisco, the seventh in the list of 
winners, chose a vacation stay at the San 
Ysidro Ranch, in Santa Barbara.

This Association believes that the 
Sihool Safety Patrol movement is probably 
the outstanding traffic safct)' program of 
the past three decades, and certainly has 
been an outstanding factor in reducing 
child fatalities and injuries in traffic. I am

VOTE FOR BOND ISSUE 



Plans for the campaign to provide San 
Francisco with a new, modern and ade- 
quate Hail of Justice are moving ahead 
rapidly, according to Walter A. Haas, 
Chairman of the Citizens' Committee for a 
new Hall of Justice. Haas yesterday an- 
nounced the appointment of Joseph A. 
Moore, Jr., President of the Moore Dry 
Dock Company, as Vice Chairman of the 
Committee; Lester H. Empey, Vice Presi- 
dent of the American Trust Company, as 
Treasurer; and D. V. Nicholson as Cam- 
paign Manager. Mayor George Christo- 
pher is Honorary Chairman of the Com- 
mittee, and sponsor of the project. 

"San Francisco's present Hall of Justice 
is a disgrace to the city and a serious ob- 
structipn to the efficient enforcement of 
law and protection of life and property," 
said Haas. "The present hall was built in 
1912, when the population of the city was 
half of what is is now. Expansion of pres- 
ent fa<;ilities is impossible. Because of the 
rapid growth of the city, and the increase 
in the personnel of all city departments 
which normally operate out of the Hall of 
Justice, it has been necessary to rent quar- 
ters for three different departments in pri- 
vately pwned office buildings. These are 
the District Attorney, Public Defender and 
Adult Probation Officer. This is both costly 
and damaging to efficient operation. In ad- 
dition to office space rented in privately 
owned buildings, two of the three traffic 
courts, and the traffic fines bureau are now 
located in the City Hall — causing consider- 
able confusion and inconvenience to the 
public"! 

Called Dangerous 

Haas pointed out that both the criminal 
courts and the police department operate 
under extremely difficult, frustrating and, 
at times, dangerous conditions. Prisoners 
are brought from the jail through the open 
and usually crowded corridors of the Hall 



UP TO THE VOTERS 

Architects' drawings of the pro- 
posed new Hall of Justice — a seven 
and a half story modern building 
designed to house all city depart- 
ments concerned with law enforce- 
ment, plus the Sheriff's detention 
jail appears on the outside cover. 
Voters will have an opportunity 
to vote on the Hall of Justice bond 
issue — Proposition A — at the June 
5th election. 



of Justice to the courts, and are herded into 
the courts in groups of twenty or thirty at 
a time, for lack of any proper waiting 
room for prisoners. 

"This not only lowers the dignity of the 
courtroom and causes serious overcrowd- 
ing," said Haas, "it affords opportunity for 
prisoners to escape — an opportunity which 
more than one prisoner has used." 

The Police Department labors under se- 
vere handicaps — lack of adequate working 
and storage space, and lack of modern fa- 
cilities considered essential today in crimi- 
nology, Haas said. 

"Incredible as it sounds, there is not one 
interrogation room in the entire Hall of 
Justice — nor any private space which could 
substitute for one,'' Haas said. "There are 
no interview rooms in which officers can 
talk privately with witnesses, injured par- 
ties or other citizens with information, ex- 
cept for a tiny cubicle which was partition- 
ed off in a corner of the burglary detail 
room. Officers assigned to such details as 
homicide, robbery, burglary and fraud 
must talk to witnesses and suspects alike 
in their crowded quarters with other offi- 
cers and visitors only inches away." 
Nineteen Million 
■ The proposed new Hall of Justic will be 



a seven and a half story building, plus a 
one-story parking deck. It will cover 713,- 
200 square feet and will house the Police 
Administration Department a:id Juvenile 
Bureau, four municipal criminal co-.''r!:-., 
four superior criminal courts, three tra*"' c 
courts, the District Attorney, Public De- 
fender, Adult Probation Officer, City 
Prison, Sheriff's Detention Jail, County 
Clerk's Criminal Division, the Coroner, 
the Sheriff and the Police Academy. There 
will be parking space for 7 50 cars, includ- 
ing 3^0 police cars and motorcycles The es- 
timated cost of the new building has been 
set at $19,475,000, including land, con- 
struction, furnishings and equipment and 
a contingency fund. 

"The new building will facilitate work- 
ing relations between the courts and all city 
departments concerned with law enforce- 
ment, " Haas said. "It is indispensable to 
meet our city's pressing needs and to pro- 
vide efficient service to our citizens." 

Rental Savings 

It was also pointed out that when all 
such departments are in one building the 
city will be saved the $76,680 annually 
now being paid out in rentals. Upon com- 
pletion of the new Hall of Justice vacated 
properties, valued at $392,500, will be re- 
turned to the tax roll or made available 
for city use. These include the Hall of Jus- 
tice site, the City Jail, County Jail No. 1, 
Southern Police Station, Juvenile Bureau 
and the Police Acedemy. 

San Franciscans will be able to vote for 
the new Hall of Justice — Proposition A — 
at the June 5 election. 

The Police and Peace Officers' 
Journal long has been an advocate of a 
new building to house San Francisco's law

JOE BEAVER vs THE WORLD 



By H. Clyde Amesbury 

District Traffic Engineer, Division of 
Highways 

Down on the South Fork of the Feather 
River they're a feudin'. It isn't a shootin' 
war but both parties are mighty deter- 
mined. 

The parties to the dispute are a small 
furry denizen named Joe Beaver and Cecil 
Koenig, the maintenance superintendent 
of the Division of Highways at Quincy. 

To provide a little background for the 
argiunent, the following items are sup- 
plied: 

Joe and his family lived in a small 
stream just south of Blairsden. This past 
year, the division awarded a contract to 
reroute the highway and crossed Joe's. 
The plans called for a fill which the con- 
tractor proceeded to place. This met with 
Joe's wholehearted approval; a dam was 
being constructed and a very substantial 
one just where he w .inted it. Howe\ er. he 





STEEL BARS DO NOT a prison make nor wire mesh deter a beaver. These structures show the 
efiforts made by the State of California to prevent a lone beaver from messing up the works. 
At the top Joe the Beaver has water mo feet above the drain pipe which he insists must be 
plugged up and which he proceeds to do every time the maintenance crew cleans it out. The 
lower picture shows the elaborate steel and mesh contraption built to thwart Jo, replete with 
a bucket full of creosote that dripped on the little animal and caused him to be ostracized by 
his family. But the battle is not yet over ! 



was horrified to note they left a hole in it 
containing a pipe 36 inches in diameter 
and it didn't hold water. With the best 
intentions in the world and in a spirit of 
helpfulness, he proceeded to plug the hole. 



Joe Costs Dough 

During the course of construction, the 

contractor spent about $300 unplugging 

the pipe. Joe knew very' well you couldn't 

have a dam with a hole in it! He busily 



plugged away and hoped the contractor 
would see the light. 

Finally, the contractor completed his 
work and with the pipe all clean had it 
accepted by the State. "Then in a few days 
before the maintenance department took 
over, Joe plugged the pipe tight. 
Joe 'Wins Again 

Now appears Cecil Koenig; he was hor- 
rified to find a pipe plugged on his new 
job. He sent a crew to clean it out. They 
worked from 8 until 3 o'clock and had it 
about completed. That night Joe assem- 
bled his family and next morning when 
the crew returned the pipe was plugged 
again. Looked like Joe won this round. 

Then Cecil tore out the plug and built 
a contrivance of steel posts and mesh to 
keep Joe away from the upper end of the 
culvert. Cecil claimed he won that round. 

Joe examined and investigated this ad- 
dition to the landscape for about a week 
until he was certain it wasn't some kind 
of a trap to catch an unsuspecting and 
helpful beaver. Then he tunneled under 
the wire and plugged the pipe. That round 
he won. 

Cecil looked over the situation, cleaned 
out the culvert, spotted where Joe came 
under the wire, and hung a bucket of creo- 
sote with a small hole in the bottom where 
the liquid dripped out over the location. 
Joe apparently got some of this on his fur. 
Maybe he got some in his eyes. If there 
had been a referee he would have screamed

GOSSIP OF THE PISTOL RANGES 



April in Oakland is usually the month 
the pistol boys dread, especially at the Oak- 
land range for it's in the month of April 
that the rains have raised havoi with the 
matches for several years past, pouring the 
the liquid sunshine all over the range and 
forcing post|X3nement of many matches. 
April K. \'-)'>(\ should go down as the out- 
standmg April of the club's history for it 
was one of the nicest days one could .isk for 
— and weren't the club oHkials happy! 

Some 300 gunslingers turned out for the 
ixcasion and once agam the Cap & Ball 
match almost had to be shot by candlelight. 
Again there were six relays in most of the 
matches, save the .4S and it looks as tho the 
club will have to start limiting the number 
of shooters, or relays in order to allow the 
shoots to get over within a reasonable hour. 
The hero of Sunday's shoot and top medal 
winner was San j-rancisco s gunsmith. Bob 
Chow, who nosed out Milt Klipfel by seven 
points for a total of 877 as against his 863 
for March. 

While on the subject of aggregate scores 
I should tell you that the Fort Ord Pistol 
team composed of Lieut. Wilson and Sgts. 
Wright, I3reithwait, Smith and Galloway 
t(X)k a trip to the San Diego Matches last 
month and came home loaded with every- 
thing but the key to the city. The boys won 
the aggregate for the three guns, took three 
team trophic-s and 31 (look at that again) 
yep. VI medals leaving practically nuttin' 
for the other shooters. 

Gl-TS EXCITfcD 

Ernie Lum has been shcx)ting for rorne 
time in the expert class but hasn't lad too 
much success but Sunday Ernie shot a pos- 
sible timed-fire string in the CF National 
Mate h course and was 5o excited for the rest 
of the day he should have gone home ri/^'it 
after everyone signed his target. Tha; >va-; 
the first possible he ever shot in competi- 
tion and as is mucho, mucho the case he 
couldn't take it and ruined his scores for 
the remainder of the matches. 

At the San Bruno !nd(X)r Championsliip 
matches last month A I Suarez gets hot and 
carried off the high aggregate medal and 
just to show the gang it wasn't a fluke, he 
tied the 2^ f<K>t slow-fire world's record 
with a I VI, Next time Al sez the buttcrflys 
will sure be flying but he ho|->es not! 

R. T. Driskell reports to us th.it last week 
some clown swiped his gun kit with a A'< 
automatic K38 S&W and his .22 Hi- Stand- 
ard. Who ever the stupe was that took the 
guns runs a swell chance of winding up in 
the bucket— it might take a long while but 




that's usually what liapjKiis to bad boys 
who steal other people s guns. I have seen 
it so often that eventually the gun is traced 
back to the thief and then he has time to 
repent in panoptican. (Hows that for a 
word.') (Editor: What's it mean Ross?) 

Hi; Scores Points 

Noticed that Karl Schaugaard member of 
one of the SFPD teams scored a few points 
for himself in a recent examination and is 
now on the lieutenant's list waiting for a 
call. Nice going, Karl, and congratulations. 

Nice going for navyboy Poganski in the 
.22 Timed-fire match when he came up 
with two neat possibles for a perfect score 
of 200. Too bad he didn't get a chance to 
f/ for a record. 

Sgt. Bcllera tells me that after the State 
M-iUhes at Fort Ord in June the pistol 
r\ -gc wi!l be in great shape to hold month- 
ly civilian matches. And that's just what he 
intends doing. He will have ")0 firing points 
on both the twenty-five and fifty yard 
cour Ci which should accommodate c|uite a 
plenty of shooters. Should this plan go thru 
1. might well take the place of the shoots in 
San Francisco and at the same time give the 
Bay Area fans a chance for a nice trip down 
Monterc-y way. 

Full Of Gab 

With the 2700 aggregate very close now. 
advance signups arc due. So better get in 
touch with the Oakland Club and have your 
favorite target and relay set aside for you. 
This year the .•^^ matches will be held on 
Saturday and that's that! No other guns 
will be used that day as last year the K)ys 
had complaints when thq- used the .22 



.ilong with the .45 and many of the small 
bore shooters couldn't get away for two 
days. The 2700 aggregate match will be 
under the Western Revolver Association 
sponsorship and is a very popular shoot. 

Pete Peters, from over San Rafael way, 
put in a belated appearance Sunday being 
.ih^icnt for several months. Naturally Pete 

IS full of gab about the Junior State Rifle 

li.impionship matches but wasn't asking 
lor donations this time as the group is not 
giving merchandise prizes to the teen-agers 
this year. Also saw Floyd La Craft on the 
lines with the same old alibis he used nearly 
four years ago when he last appeared with 
the gang. 

Ed Zumwalt, USMC, hospitalized at 
Oak Knoll Hospital, had difficulty with his 
legs, (or lack of same) but stuck with the 
shooting as long as he was able to navigate 
with the aid of crutches. Ed had a good 
time and is enjoying the shooting and ex- 
pects to do mighty well, suh, as soon as he 
gets his new pins. Ed hails from Texas, suh. 
a mighty fine state.

SCHOLARSHIPS 

The Kemper Foundation for Traffic 
Safety, Chicago, will provide grant-in-aid 
awards totaling $37,200 to police depart- 
ments to enable them to send qualified 
officers to the Traffic Institute, Northwest- 
ern University, for the 1956-57 traffic po- 
lice administration training program. 

Ray Ashworth, acting director of the 
Traffic Institute, in announcing the awards, 
said that they represent sixteen Si, 650 fel- 
lowships and sixteen $675 tuition scholar- 
ships. Eight awards of each category will 
go to municipal police departments and 
eight to state and county police and high- 
way patrol agencies. 

The Kemper awards for 1956-57 are 
being given in the Institute's 20th anniver- 
sary year. The Institute was established 
April 15, 1936, and the Kemper Founda- 
tion in the same year by the Lumbermens 
Mutual Casualty Company and the Ameri- 
can Motorists Insurance Company. The 
Kemper Foundation has contributed funds 
for police training at the Institute continu- 
ally since 1936. 

The 1956-57 training program will be- 
gin September 20, 1956, and continue 
through June 17, 1957. June 1 is the dead- 
line for police departments to apply for 
grants-in-aid and for admission for their 
representatives. Application forms may be 
obtained from the Traffic Institute, 1704 
Judson Avenue, Evanston, Illinois. 

The nine-month training program, de- 
signed especially for staff and command 
traffic police personnel, comprises four ma- 
jor areas of study and activity; (1) Prob- 
lems in Highway Transportation, and the 
agencies concerned with them; (2) Func- 
tions of the Traffic Police, covering acci- 
dent investigation, traffic law enforcement, 
and traffic direction; (3) Management of 
Police Service, and (4) General education 
courses which are arranged to increase the 
competence of the student and to provide 
answers to problems in traffic police man- 
agement found in the fields of psychology, 
economics, sociology, and political science. 

The program consists of classroom work, 
supplemented by field, laboratory, and 
study projects and special conferences. 

Those Eligible 

Factors considered in selection of de- 
partment representatives and granting of 
awards are: (1) the applicant's ability and 
potential usefulness to his department: 
(2) the extent of the accident and conges- 
tion problem in his city or state, and (3) 
his department's plans for tne profitable 
use of his training to further improve its 
traffic super\'ision program. 

To be eligible to compete for admission 
and for award consideration, the applicant 
must: (1) be not more than 45 years of 
age; (2) be a police officer in active serv- 




NUMBER ONE AIDE — Long the Chief's partner when they worked on homicide and racket 
investigations, it was no surprise when the studious and affable Thomas J. Cahill was named 
Deputy Chief when Frank Ahern took over the top spot in the San Francisco Police Depart- 
ment at the start of 1956. Tom looks every inch the oflficer in his new uniform. He's mighty 
proud of the gold star, presented to him by members of his own family.

his department, during which his salary 
will be paid; (6) have the assurance of his 
superior that he will be returned to active 
service upon completing the course; (7) 
agree to return to his department for at 
least three years, and (8) be in good 
health and physically fit. There are no edu- 
cational prerequisites. 

Selection of candidates is made by a se- 
lection board composed of representatives 
of Northwestern University, the Interna- 



tional Association of Chiefs of Police, and 
the Kemper Foundation for Traffic Safety. 
Before the selection board meets, appli- 
cants are given examinations and are inter- 
viewed by Institute staff members in their 
home departments. 

Up to Chiefs 
"To increase the possibility' of having a 
man selected from their departments," Mr. 
Ashworth said, "police chiefs are encour- 
a';ed to permit all policemen of the rank 
of sergeant and above, who are eligible to 
compete, to submit applications to them. 
The chiefs may then forward those appli- 
cations which they recommend. If chiefs 
wish help in establishing a basis for evalu- 
ating applicants. Institute staff members 
will be glad to assist. "

dial invitation is extended to all individuals 
interested in the treatment of the delin- 
quent. 



DON'T BABY IT 

It s not good to "baby" a new car when 
it is being broken in. Most automobile 
manufacturers recommend that intermit- 
tent fast driving is good for a new engine 
so long as you avoid sustained high 
speeds, reports the California State Auto- 
mobile Association. If you have a new car, 
chc-ck with the ser\ice department of your 
dealer on the technique of breaking it in. 
It will pay off in better engine perform- 
ance and longer engine life.

FUGITIVE FELONS 

FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover has an- 
nounced that well over 4,800 criminals 
sought by the FBI for state and local au- 
thorities under the Fugitive Felon Act 
have been located in the postwar period. 

According to Mr. Hoover, requests for 
FBI assistance in locating fugitives who 
have fled interstate have increased greatly 
in recent years. Correspondingly, locations 
of these criminals has risen more than 200 
per cent since 1945. In 1946, the first 
postwar year, 287 violaters of the Fugi- 
tive Felon Act were located. This figure 
rose to 552 in 1953. Locations of these 
fugitives totaled 618 last year and 521 in 
the first nine months of 1955. 

The Fugitive Felon Act enables the FBI 
to conduct investigations to locate crimi- 
nals who have fled across state lines to 
avoid prosecution, custody or confinement 
for murder, kidnapping, burglary, robbery, 
mayhem, rape, assault with a dangerous 
weapon, extortion accompanied by threats 
of violence, or attempts to commit any of 
these crimes. Additionally, persons who 
flee interstate to avoid giving testimony 
in any criminal proceeding involving the 
commission of an offense punishable by 
imprisonment in a penitentiary may be 
sought by the FBI under this law. 

Mr. Hoover emphasized that local pro- 
cess must be outstanding, there must be 
information indicating that the fugitive 
has left the state and local or state author- 
ities must request FBI assistance before a 
Federal investigation may be instituted. 
"Although Federal prosecution may 
result from violations of the Fugitive 
Felon Act, the primary purpose of these 
investigations is to locate criminals and 
make them available to state and local 
authorities," Mr. Hoover stated.

How it^s Done in Miami ! 



Municipal authorities, with a good mea- 
sure of help from private enterprise, have 
embarked on a long-range program aimed 
at solving the oflf-street parking problems 
of Miami, Fia. 

Miami's problems in this respect are 
compounded by the cit)' s tremendous rate 
of growth and a S^ per cent fluctuation of 
automobile traffic between summer lows 
and winter highs. 

Four multi-level parking garages, capa- 
ble of accommodating 1,'iOO cars, have 
been built by private interests in the down- 
town area since the war. Two others are 
being constructed privately this year to pro- 
vide 700 additional spaces. 

A survey last year revealed that the 
downtown area will need 10 to 12 addition- 
al garages, capable of accommodating 
-4,000 cars, between now and 1965. 

To insure development of a planned pro- 
gram to meet this need, the city recently or- 
ganized an Off-Strcet Parking Board to 
select sites for the proposed garages and to 
sec that they arc built. In most instances, 
street level parking lots are selected as the 
garage sites. 

Once sites are designated, private owners 
arc urged to build and operate the garages. 
If they are unwilling to cIo so, the board has 
authority to actjuire the property and con- 
struct the garages for municipal operation. 

One of the new garages being built by 
private interests this year resulted from city 
designation of the site. The other is solely 
the result of private initiative. 

Thc-parking board already has instituted 
condemnation prcKcedings against property 
selected as the site for a third new garage 
and is asking appraisals on still another site. 

The city has set aside $1.5 million for

use by the OtT-Strcct Parking Board in ac- 
quisition of garage sites. Revenue from on- 
strect parking meters, totaling about S200,- 
000 a year, also goes to the board. 

On the basis of this income. Chairman 
William L. Pallit said the board could bor- 
row about $4 million to carry out its pro- 
gram. Additional bonds for garage con- 
struction can be floated on the basis of anti- 
cipated revenue from the structures. 

National surveys indicate that the cost of 
open deck ramp garages averages SI, 500 
per stall. The cost of walled-in garages is 
$1,800 per stall and for mcxhanically oper- 
ated (elevator) garages, $2,000 per stall. 

The Sunshine Parking Garage Company, 
which operates throughout the nation, ex- 
pects to build a new 300-car garage in 
Miami at a per stall cost of $1,000 or less. 



CASH FOR TRAINING 

The Kemper Foundation for Traffic 
Safety has presented a check for $15,400 
to the Traffic Institute of Northwestern 
University for police traffic training. 

These funds will be used by the In- 
stitute in 1956 to administer its training 
program and to provide extension assist- 
ance to graduates and their departments. 

Since 1936, the Kemper Foundation, 
which is sponsored by the Lumbermens 
Mutual Casualty Company and the Ameri- 
can Motorists Insurance Company, has pro- 
vided nearly half a million dollars to the 
Trafiic Institute for police officer training. 
Most of these funds ha\e been made 
available to police as fellowships and 
scholarships f^or the Institute's nine-month 
Kemper Course in Traflic Police Adminis- 
tration. 

Twenty-two of the 29 men in the In- 
stitute's 1955-56 course arc attending on 
Kemper awards. Since 1936. 418 of the 
742 graduates of the Traffic Police Ad- 
ministration course have received Kemper 
fellowships and scholarships. Hundreds of 
other police oliicers have attended Institute 
short courses, which the Kemper Founda- 
tion helps to support.

A WINNING GRIN— And he has a right to it for he had just won 
the opening shooting matches in Oakland for the month of March. 
He is Thomas D. Elton, an aviation ordnance man first class in 



Uncle Sam's Navy. Tom is currently attached to the Fighter Squad- 
ron 64th NAS, Alameda, so we may hear more of his prowess on 
the pistol range. 



By J. Ross DUNNIGAN 
The opening day at the Oakland Pistol 
Range was Sunday, March 4th. and from 
the mobs of shooters one would kinda get 
the impression it was a regional or national 
match. There were around 325 shooters on 
the lot Sunday and this coupled with the 
families that usually come along, made it 
sure look like the gathering of the clan — 
and a big clan at that ! And the Lord help 
those people who came late because there 
wasn't a darn place to park your hack and 
I'm speaking from experience as I was one 
of the late boys. Maybe the Club could 
mark off parking places that would help the 
boys and girls to park more easily and in all 
probabilities it would give them more 
space. 

Now take that first match — the Camp 
Perry. It is always the popular match on any 
range because that's where the novice 



shooters can run up a good score for them- 
selves on account of because the slow-fire 
string is at 25 yards. There were 6 relays on 
that match (and as a matter of record, all 
matches excepting the .45 had 6 relays) 
which didn't finish until 11 o'clock and 
caused many of the shooters to request that 
the match be shot later on in the day as it 
dragged out the matches and the gang did 
not get away until very late in the after- 
noon. Maybe the Club could set up a battery 
of floodlights and hold the matches late 
into the night. 

Strangers Too 
I have been attending matches all along 
the coast for a good many years but I have 
never seen such a mob as there was Sunday. 
Of all the new faces that were constantly 
popping up all around I was wont to be- 
lieve I was at some match in another state. 
The Club officials were unable to figure it 



out either. Maybe the fact that the 1956 
program called for all matches to be NRA 
sponsored or whether it was just the open- 
ing day was anybody's guess but I do know 
that as the season moves along the shooters, 
especially a lot of the new ones, gradually 
drop out until there is the same old gang 
on the lines plus a few novices who like the 
game. Anyhow, it was a great day with 
Tom Elton of the Na\'y taking the top hon- 
ors for the opening of the season. 

Art Poganski, of Kentfield, by now has 
retired from the U. S. Marine Corps after 
20 years of service and intends to spend a 
lot of time in just a sittin' and a rockin' 
with an occasional spell of shootin'. 
Food Sell Out 

Boy, oh Boy, but didn't the snack shack 
do a land oflice business Sunday with the 
mobs about 3 deep all tr)-ing to get that last 
hunk of pie or bottle of wassail? Many a

good and true shooter had to went mit out 
his lunch figuring the snack shack would 
take care of the gastronomic needs only to 
find out that about 11:30 the joint was 
completely out of fodder. And wassail. 
coke. Squirt, milk, etc., etc., etc. ! 

Understand that Jack Chaney, of tlu 
SFPD pistol team, is progressing as well a,s 
could be expected after a rather ruff time 
with the ola pump. And on the subject of 
pumps. I saw Sgt. Bellcra, from Fort Ord, 
again on the shooting line after his Ixiut 
with his heart and yuh know, the guy looks 
1 years younger ! 

And a bunch of nice, fresh orchids to 
our man in the control tower, Tom Cham- 
bers, as he was the proud owner of a pros- 
pective pistoleer right after the matches 
when Mrs. Chambers handed the old man 
his fourth. 

What's Wrong Here? 

It was good to see the Fish and Game- 
Commission team with us again and this 
time they were detailed to the matches 
which seems like the modern miracle as I 
understood the brass were not to keen to 
make a detail. The tale has its darker side, 
however, as I understand the team would 
only be detailed just once during the sea- 
son and this was the detail I Ye Gods, let's 
hope the team gets here more often than 
that as they are a swell bunch of fellows, 
good sports and a real good public relations 
group for the Commission. 

The San Jose Pistol Club have had a 
streak of tuff luck as the range grounds 
have been sold to make way for a golf 
course. It may be that the Club will be able 
to hold a couple of matches, say for April 
and May, but after that it's just too bad. 
And the boys have nothing in sight for a 
new range at this writing so if you know 
anyone who has an extra large backyard 
that could be used for a target range get in 
touch with the San Jose Club. 

Im more than surprised (but am I.-') at 
Dick Willet of the SFPD, for his very non- 
chalance when he deftly placed a nice, fat 
10 on his benih partners target. The air was 
blue, red and purple for a moment, from 
Dick but the shooter who received the 10 
(a novice, too) wouldn t accept Dick's 
apologies as he claimed he shot it himself 
— the first time in his life he ever shot a 10. 
Felton Is Referee 

With the installation of the loud-speaker 
system all over the place it takes away the 
chances for new members in the mythical 
Siesta Club The club hasn't done too well 
of late but now with the new speakers on 
the range its ihances for members are slim- 
mer than c%er. Oh, well, I guess one has to 
advance with the times. 

There wasn't one peep out of the crowd 
about paying the T** cent entry fee that I 
. ould hear and its a wonder as it upped the

Official referee, Ray Felton, (he has a card 
to show you in case you are a doubter ) did 
a nice job for the day and is bound to learn 
a lot of shooting he never knew existed be- 
fore — that is, before he was a ref. 

Dick Thomas, one of our old timers, 
folded up his tent and has gone to Los 
Angelc-s where, I understand he has been 
given charge of a rifle and pistol range (for 
a consideration, I should mention) for the 
public. Dick is well known in shcx)ting cir- 
cles as a gunsmith and shcxjtcr. His .IS gun 
was one that the boys always were afraid of 
as Dick had the knack of shooting the wea- 
pon.

The period of the French Revolution 
with the storming of the Bastille, the Pari- 
sian State Prison, has long been a subject 
'round which innumerable romances have 
been written. Not only to writers of fiction 
have those incidents opened up an inex- 
haustible fertility of ideas, but historians 
have found that time of rebellion and 
bloodshed to be full of never-ending inter- 
est. 

The popular, and entirely erroneous 
belief about the Bastille is that when the 
revolutionists swarmed into it they released 
a host of badly treated prisoners. This quite 
incorrect idea is entirely dispelled by an 
article that appeared some time ago in 
"John O' London's Weekly," which says — 

"In the minds of the people the Bastille 
was the symbol of arbitrary power and tyr- 
anny. Wild legends (which persist to this 
day) portrayed the sufferings and tortures 
to which innocent people were subjected 
within its walls. 

"In view of those legends it is instructive 
to note that just before the Revolution the 
King's ministers had considered removal 
of the prison as an anachronism and had 
ordedered plans for its demolition to be 
prepared; and that, instead of a host of 
starving innocents awaiting release, the lib- 
erators found only seven prisoners — four 
forgers, two lunatics and a spendthrift- 
criminal who had been incarcerated at the 
request of his own family. 

Whim of King 

"Of course, in 1789, the time of the Rev- 
olution, conditions in the Bastille were dif- 
ferent to those which had prevailed in for- 
mer years. In fact, it would appear that the 
character of the reigning king, and the 
trend of the times generally, influenced to 
a very considerable extent the treatment of 
the prisoners." 

The article from which we have quoted 
gives further interesting information, and 
shows how very important a part the Bas- 
tille played in France's warfare with Eng- 
land, as well as its dignity of use in housing 
important political and military offenders. 

From the time when fears of English in- 
vasions were finally allayed to the reign of 
Louis X'VI, when the Bastille "degener- 
ated" into a common gaol for criminals, it 
was used as a State lock-up for political and 
military offenders, lunatics, dangerous au- 
thors, or journalists, spies and agents of 
foreign powers, and spendthrifts, degener- 
ates, or libertines confined at the request of 
their relatives; all of whom were arrested . 



on the dreaded lettre de cachet signed by 
the King. 

Amusing Charges 

There exists a list of Bastille prisoners, 
cataloguing the offences for which they 
were interned. Some of the entries make 
strange, even amusing, reading: — 

"1684 — Charles Combon, riding-mas- 
ter, who gave himself out to be a Count; a 
reader of horoscopes, who practised for- 
tune-telling. 

"1686 — Madame Desfontaines and her 
two daughters, for religious reasons. 

"1688— Rolland. Tried to sell himself 
to the devil. 

"1693— Phillippe Moilard. Melancho- 
lia. 

"1743 — The Sieur de la Faye, Dragoon 
Oricer. For interrupting a performance of 
the Italian Comedy. 

"1 73 5— Malbay. Helped the Due de Ni- 
vernois to ruin himself. At the request of 
the Due de Nevers, he was shut in the Tas- 
tille. This prisoner had a very beautiful 
wife. 

"1745 — Madame Peignier, an intergan- 
te, who had communicated suggestions to 
the King. 

"1751— The Sieur de la Fosse, Tax Col- 
lector, in La Rochelle, for showing the 
devil to Madame de Montboisier." 

Black Magic 

As a sidenote, it is mentioned that Black 
Magic, or, as we should say, belief in it, 
was very prevalent during the l6th and 
1 7th centuries, as is seen from some of the 
above charges. The entry of 1735 is very 
naive, as it might be inferred, and probably 
not incorrectly so, that the Due de Nevers 
coveted the prisoner's "very beautiful 
wife." 

It was in the I4th century only that, 
under the reign of a crafty and supersti- 
tious monarch, the Bastille really lived up

other periods, the system in vogue was far- 
cical : 

"Under Louis XI, prisoners were tor- 
tured. But in other reigns their existence 
was made more or less tongcnial. The old 
legend of oubliettes was exploded on the 
capture of the Bastille, when the place was 
thoroughly explored. Indeed, the treatment 
of prisoners was at times Gilbertian. It was 
no common occurrence for noblemen 
whose arrest had been ordered to be invited 
by letter to appear in the Bastille on a stat- 
ed day; and it sometimes happened that the 
room was not ready for the new prisoner, 
in which case he was [xjlitely requested to 
spend the night in a neighboring inn and 
return the following day I 

ExPHNsivE Foods 

Very likely the luxurious way of living 
at the Court of Louis XVI had its effect on 
the methods adopted at the Bastille at that 
partiiTilar time: — 

"The Government did not provide fur- 
niture for the prisoner; if ricn, he might 
furnish his cell as elegantly as he pleased; 
if pwr, he was given money to purchase 
necessar)- artidc-s. 

"A definite sum was set aside for the 
prisoner's maintenance and this sum the 
prisoner could use as he liked within cer- 
tain limits. If he lived economically and 
modestly he could lay money by. It even 
happened that prisoners who were released 
asked that they may remain longer in the 
Bastille in order to increase their savings. 
And indeed these requests are said to have 
been granted from time to time." 

They were certainly sumptuously fed. 
The archives of the Bastille give a list of 
the extras received by Tavernier, one of the 
seven prisoners of July 14, 1789, in one 
month. An imposing list! Sixty bottles of 
wine, thirty of beer, four of brandy; coflfce. 
sugar, tobatto, oysters, chestnuts, apple'., 
pears and a turkey hen. 

Ali.owei) To LiAvi; 

Small wonder that the upkeep of the 
Bastille was a heavy drain on the Royal Ex- 
chequer. In 1 77-J. the outlay for food alone 
amounted to 67,000 francs. 

The "privileges of the Bastille" included 
some which strike us as strange. One pris- 
oner had permission to keep dogs, another 
amused himself with a cat, and others kept 
birds. Music was in particular favor, espe- 
cially violin and flute playing. One made 
furniture; others knitted or sewed; and in 
rooms where sc>eral lived together, cards 
were played as well as chess and other 
games." 

Most amazing perhaps, w.i.s the permis- 
sion sometimes given to pay visits in the 
town — the prisoner bcin^ put on his honor 
•o return by sunset. 



POLICE SCIENCE 

A new approach to teaching police sci- 
ence will be offered by Western Reserve 
University in Cleveland, Ohio, at its third 
annual Institute on Science in Law Enforce- 
ment the week of June 18-23. 

Attendance will be by invitation only. 
Refresher sessions on new medico-legal 
developments will be coupled with ticid 
work and tutoring in groups limited to five 
students each. Several social and entertain- 
ment events also are part of the workshop 
program. 

Institute offerings are one phase of a 
broad program of the Western Reserve 
University Law-Medicine Center, directed 
by Oliver C. Schroeder, Jr. The Center is a 
joint agency of WRU and the office of Cuy- 
ahoga County Coroner Dr. Samuel R. Ger- 
ber. Teachers are drawn from the Western 
Reserve faculty, the coroner's staff and po- 
lice departments of Cleveland and suburbs. 

Registration will be $75. Housing is 
available at a modern residence hall on the 
campus for an additional Si "> ; other accom- 
modations are available at hotels, motor 
courts and guest homes in the University 
area on Cleveland's east side.

I After a preliminary tally of San Frandscos traffic acc.dent toll for 1955, D.rector cenl'ldTtl" Se^K^tL^n £ 

Otto Meyer has released the following figures with a plea to all San Franciscans to read national average, Paul H.ll Director S 

them carefully and -think. Pj^,j gervices for the National Safety 

A COMPARISON OF THE 1954 - 1955 TRAFFIC ACCIDENT TOLL FOR S. F. 
1954 



POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 

SAN FRANCISCO TRAFFIC TOLL 



Persons killed: 77 

Fatal accidents: 77 

Pedestrians killed: 52 

Injury accidents: 4,856 

Persons injured: 6,324 

Pedestrians injured: 1,556 

Property damage ace: 11,870 

TOTAL ACCIDENTS: 16,803 

Meyer pointed out that anyone study- 
ing these figures may readily conclude 

that a trend in the number of deaths, in- 
juries and damage to property is in the 
making. 

It doesn't take an expert to predict that 
unless there is considerable improvement 
in our traffic manners we may see the same 
gruesome figures appear in the statistical 
report at the end of 1956. These mute 
figures do not tell us the story behind 
them — the suffering and maiming of the 
victims — the families disrupted and the 
many persons affected by each and every 
death — the cost in time and money of 
each so-called "accident". 

These are not, for the most part, acci- 
dents. They are occurrences caused by hu- 
man failings such as carelessness and dis- 
courtesies. 

"If every driver and pedestrian would 
bear in mind the hazards and responsi- 
bilities of sharing the streets, starting each 
day with the thought that he, personally, 
will not be involved in an accident", says 
Meyer. "He must watch out for the other 
fellow, practice defensive driving and 
walking and allow for the other fellow's 
mistakes. Resolve now that at this time 
next year you or your loved ones will not 
be reduced to statistics."

Despite the 3,104 traffic deaths last 
year, California's death rate per one mil- 
lion miles traveled was 6.1, compared 
with the national average of 6.4. In com- 
petition in the areas of engineering, en- 
forcement, and licensing program, Cali- 
fornia rated with the highest states, and 
received several first place awards. 

Hill stated that California's program 
could be much improved, and that the 
ghastly toll of lives lost in traffic could be 
cut even more by forward-moving legisla- 
tion and planning. 

Chemical tests for intoxicants, an im- 
proved educational program for safety in 
the elementary schools, a central accident 
record bureau for processing reports and 
data, with a single report to cover accident 
facts and financial responsibility informa- 
tion were among his suggestions. 

Other recommendations included an in- 
crease in California Highway Patrol per- 
sonnel, and road sign tests for orignial and 
renewal of drivers' licenses. Hill's final 
suggestion would create a public action 
group to support accident prevention ac- 
tivities throughout the entire state in hopes 
that "innocent, law-abiding citizens would 
no longer have to pay with their lives for 
the carelessness and thoughtlessness of 
others, "

HUGE GAS SALES 

Gross revenues from the state tax on 
December wholesale distributions of gaso- 
line and other high-test motor vehicle fuel 
in California amounted to $22,890, 12^, 
according to figures released today by 
George R. Reilly, First District Member 
of the State Board of Equalization. 

Tax refunds by Controller Robert C. 
Kirkwood during December to purchasers 
of some 32,000,000 gallons of fuel for 
non-highway use totaled $1,934,454, or 

8.5 percent of the gross tax liabilities ac- 
cruing during the month. After these 
refunds, there remained $20,955,673 of 
net revenues for construction and mainte- 
nance of state highways and local roads. 

The gross revenues of almost $22.9 mil- 
lion, and the 381 1/2 million gallons of tax- 
able distributions producing these rev- 
enues, were 39 percent higher than the 
corresponding figures for December, 1954. 
This was the smallest month's increase 
during 1955 — a not unexpected conse- 
quence of the unusually heavy precipita- 
tion California experienced this Decem- 
ber. 

During the calendar year just com- 
pleted, 4.6 billion gallons of taxable mo- 
tor vehicle fuel were distributed by Cali- 
fornia refiners and importers, an increase 
of 6.4 percent over the distributions in 
1954. This tremendous volume of fuel 
would have been suHicient to provide each 
of the 6,181,500 motor vehicles that had 
been registered in California by the end of 
December with 741 gallons of gasoline — 
enough fuel to propel a passenger car a 
distance of roughly 10,500 milc-s. 

Not included in the 4.6 billion are over 

1.6 billion gallons of high-test motor ve- 
hicle fuel which was distributed tax-free 
in 19'>'5, mainly to exporters, to the U. S. 
Armed Forces for use in watercraft or air- 
planes, to licensed dealers in butane and 
other liquefied petroleum gases, and to 
licensed airlines and aircraft manufactur-

POLICE AND NUCLEAR DEFENSE 



By Lieutenant D. M. Davis 
Training Officer, Sheriff's Office, San Bernardino 



(This article explains in simple language 
the effects of modern nuclear bombings, 
and the defensive and preventative steps 
that should be taken to cut to a minimum 
the ill effects of such attack. — The Author) 
Fear if uncontrolled could well be worse 
than the actual bomb. Fear is the greatest 
enemy of man. We are motivated in our 
acts more by fear than any other feeling. 
Many of us fear old age, instead of prepar- 
ing for it. We fear a rainstorm because it 
will soak our unprotected property, instead 
of building a roof to ward off the elements. 
Instead of teaching our children to exercise 
proper safety precautions when crossing the 
streets, we live in constant fear of what will 
happen if they dart into the street to play. 
Far too much space in writing and time 
on radio and TV have been devoted to en- 
gendering fear and the destructive element 
of fear . . . panic in the minds of the aver- 
age citizen with regard to the damage to be 
wrought by the nuclear weapons. Panic is 
a terrible force of destruction; far more de- 
vastating in nature than the bombing itself. 
Panic and fear are contagious, while the 
bomb destroys in the target area alone. 

This writer has seen and heard far too 
much about running as a Civilian Defense 
measure. The result of this advocacy is 
physical as well as mental panic, and could 
well be more devastating to a community 
than the bomb damage itself. Congestion 
of travel facilities, with human life and 
equipment; with no destination but just 
running would be far worse, than "facing 
the music " and fighting like a man, to clear 
up the damage and rebuild. 

Don't Run Away 

Running only takes you into unknown 
territory, and to unknown possibilities. By 
standing your ground, in a suitable shelter, 
you are on known territory, though dam- 
aged. If you have sought proper cover and 
survive the blast, you are able to aid your 
fellowman and assist those in need in those 
terrible times, should a bombing take place. 
You are in a better position to aid and take 
care of your loved ones. 

Seriously, it all boils down to the fact 
that at the time the bomb strikes you are 
either killed or you are not. If you are — 
you are in no position to run. Your only 
trip will be the one supervised by a power 
greater than any human. If you are not 
killed then you can stay put, for in running 
you could very well run into worse trouble 
in a new area. A good admonition right 



here is one my old mountaineer Dad always 
reminded me of; "Prepare for the worst, 
if it happens you are ready for it, if it 
doesn't happen then you can rejoice in your 
good fortune," That pretty well fits the sit- 
uation today. Prepare for nuclear bombing 
and if it happens you will be more than apt 
to survive and live to be of service to your 
fellowman; if you aren't bombed, then 
thank God for your good fortune. 

Another saying of my Dad that is quite 
fitting here, "Don't ever start travelling 
son, unless you know where you are 
headed." Ignorance coupled with fear 
makes panic. 

Search For Facts 

Some weeks ago this writer called on 
General W. J. Roberts, U. S. A., Retired, 
of the Redlands office of Civil Defense. 
Until this informal talk with the General 
all I'd ever heard of Civil Defense was run- 
ning. No one yet has ever been able to in- 
form me just where we are all supposed to 
r«n TO. I am sure it is just as disconcerting 
to others as it has been to me, and therefore 
this pamphlet. In my quest for information 
General Roberts suplied the technical data. 

Let's pray to God it doesn't, but actually 
it can happen here. Should it happen, what 
have you done prior to it to lessen the effect 
of the bombing on you and your loved 
ones .^ What preparation can you make now 
that will make your old age more probable } 
Is there anything you can do today that may 
save the life of your boy or girl on that 
questionable day.' 

The direct target area will be completely 
devastated, all buildings and human life 
destroyed, for a half mile radius in the case 
of the Atom bomb and for a five mile 
radius in the case of the H bomb. Then 
there is "FALL OUT" damage caused by 
radio active particles of the mushroom 
cloud that travel on the wind currents. 

There isn't much protection from a 
direct hit. In the immediate bomb area 
there are no lingering radiations longer 
than a minute or so after the actual blast,

therefore rescue work can be conducted 
immediately. 

Fallout Cloud 
The resulting cloud, or mushroom, of 
dust, mist or other irradiated atmosphere 
will be the damaging element. This we 
term "fallout". This fallout extends in con- 
centrated form as a cloud over the immedi- 
ate area and is driven by the winds and 
drifts on the breezes to fall to earth over a

Wide area windward of the target for dis- 
tances up to hundreds of miles. If the bomb 
is exploded high in the air, as in the Japan- 
ese bombings, there is little damage from 
radiation in the immediate area. The harm- 
ful elements have dissipated themselves 
and decayed to suth an extent that they 
have no ill effect on known populations. If 
there is considerable air moisture or the 
bomb is exploded in or over the water, then 
this irradiated mist will be far more damag- 
ing and fall back to earth miles distant 
from the target. 

Dust and moisture and even large par- 
ticles of earth are pulled up into this cloud 
as much as fifteen miles. Each particle be- 
comes radio active. It drifts with the wind 
currents and falls slowly back to earth. If 
the wind currents are generally all in the 
same direction, than the fallout pattern will 
be in a cigar shaped outline, 40 to 60 miles 
wide and from 200 to 500 miles in length; 
depending on the course and the speed of 
the winds. 

A lethal or deadly dose of radioactivity 
for a person in an unprotected area is given 
at A "iO units. 1 00 units makes you nauseated 
while 25 units can be taken with little 
effect. You can accumulate a lethal dose by 
long exposure. In one 1952 explosion it 
showed a fallout radioactivity reading 100 
miles distant at 2300 units for a 36 hour 
period. Or five times a lethal dose had you 
been exposed for the full 36 hours. At 200 
miles it was slightly less than lethal or 
about 300 units even if exposed for the full 
36 hour period. 

Rescue Work 

This will clearly indicate that rescue 
work and repair work can be conducted 
even in the fallout area if you do not ex- 
pose yourself for prolonged periods, and 
then bathe and change clothing immedi- 
ately after exposure. 

From the detonation point the damaging 
radius of the large H bomb is 20 miles in 
all directions, even against the wind. The 
larger articles that are broken up and tossed 
about in this 40 mile circle (20 mile 
radius) is called Throwout '. The smaller 
dust and mist that is pulled up into the 
clouds later on becomes fallout. 

An underwater bomb would cause great- 
er damage from fallout. The resulting rain 
and mist and fog being a better vehicle or 
carrier for the radioactivity. 

Wind Is Factor 

Those A bombs we dropjxrd on Japan 
had an area of total destruction of % mile. 
The large H bomb has a total destruction 
area with a 5 mile radius, and with severe 
damage area of eleven miles radius. There 
is moderate damage from the H bomb for a 
radius of 20 miles. Large earth masses, 
suih as hills or mountains will tend to limit 
these distances. 

The fallout clouds travel on the winds.

each area dependent on the the direction 
and speed of wind currents. The predomin- 
. ant wind currents in San Bernardino Valley 
are from the West and at an average speed 
of ten to fifteen miles per hour. Theoreti- 
cally then .from a bombing attack on Los 
Angeles we would expect the fallout in San 
Bernardino in two to four hours. That 
would mean we would have two to four 
hours to seek adequate protection from the 
fallout damage. 

Ignorance of radioactivity makes it a po- 
tent weapon. A New Weapon. We do not 
understand it. We fear that which we do 
not understand and fear is a devastating 
force. In the past there has been near panic 
from the fear of the possibilities of nuclear 
bombings. With as little as we know today 
about it, there are many precautions we can 
take to lessen its effect; as more knowledge 
is gained more action can be taken to com- 
bat this damage from fallout. As knowl- 
edge is gained it must be disseminated to 
the general public. An intelligent under- 
standing is the most positive combatant of 
fear. Education and intelligence will lessen 
the panic effect. 

Remember, these radioactive particles 
will fall from the sky as mist or dust. Hence 
they will fall on the surfaces of objects or 
persons. Local wind gusts can carry them 
into cracks of your home, around doors or 
windows, anywhere in the fallout area. 

Return To Work 
Radioactivity decays or deteriorates 
rapidly. In a few days even in a heavily con- 
centrated area it has decayed sufficiently for 
people to go about their normal routine 
work in the area. 24 hours is considered a 
safe period>of waiting in the average fall- 
out area. While in the immediate bombing 
area, there is little lingering radioactivity, 
it having been carried into the sky in the 
mushroom effect cloud. In Hiroshima peo- 
ple worked in the immediate bombing area 
with no ill effects several hours after the 
actual detonation. Remember too, this was 
an A bomb at high level of explosion. 

If a person is exposed then decontamina- 
tion of the clothes by cleaning or burying 
(for several days) is in order. Then the 
person should take a good scrub down 
shower to wash off any dust particles on his 
person. 

Houses can be hosed off with ordinary 
garden hose and the radioactive dust 
washed into the ground for eventual decay. 
Surfaces where work is to be done can be 
washed down, or in the case of dirt area, it 
can be bulldozed off to clean an area. Streets 
can be washed down and dirt roads gone 
over with scrapers, pushing the radioactive 
dust aside to clear an uncontaminated pas- 
sage area.

able to expect 100% protection from fall- 
out. In a basement practically 95% of the 
dangers of radioactivity is eliminated. A 
normal brick or stone house gives about 
70% protection. A frame house tightly 
closed affords about 50% protection. All of 
'which would give you protection to avoid 
a lethal dose of radioactivity. Practically 
speaking, if one would go into a well con- 
structed home and remain there for 24 
hours he would be safe in going about his 
normal work after that 24 hour period. 
This of course would have to be tempered 
with judgment and application of know- 
ledge of local conditions. Circumstances 
always alter cases. 

This is fallout protection we are speak- 
ing of. The old earth covered storm shelters 
such as our early settlers of the midwest 
used, are excellent for those who are in- 
clined to set it out and stand their ground. 
A hillside cave is excellent, if provided 
with adequate entrance and some living 
facilities.

the greatest value, must b>e constructed to 
I c more adequate for anything we know of 
t. .djy Also it must be stocked with supplies 
jnJ rations for those who must occupy its 
protective confines for long periods. 

New home construction would do well 
to be equipped with specially built rooms. 
They must be reinforced, insulated and 
sturdily built to withstand those eventual- 
ities apt to come up without warning. 

DuT^- Of Police 

Schools should be built with heavily re- 
inforced tunnels, or rooms under their 
main construction. They should have room 
for the students, storage facilities and waste 
disf>osai must also be taken into considera- 
tion in this type of construction. These 
buildings, tunnels or rooms must be so 
constructed as to withstand bomb blast and 
the resulting heat as well as the damage 
from radioactive fallout. Our children are 
our future, we should take every precaution 
to adequately protect them. New schools 
are being built in California today at a 
\ery rapid pace, but adequate and modern 
bomb protection is not being built into 
them. Our youth of today must be protected 
if our nation and our way of life is to sur- 
vive. 

For those who wish to run . . . run across 
wind to unknown area and unknown cir- 
cumstances. For those who would stand 
their ground and make the most of a bad 
situation . . . then prepare now to face the 
future and its probabilities and eventual- 
ities. 

If you aspire to control others, then you 
must first learn to control yourself. It is 
absolutely obligatory that you control fear. 
To fear is normal, control of that fear is 
above average. If you aspire to leadership, 
you must recognize that force of fear as 
well as the jwwer of the other sentiments, 
such as love and hate. A good peace officer 
v.ill use all of these to his advantage. 

As peace officers we ail must not only 
assist those near and dear; but we must prcr- 
tect society in general. Our greatest assist- 
ance can be given by spreading knowledge 
.md intelligent information. \X'ith intelli- 
gent application of pertinent information 
we can avoid panic, that product of uncon- 
trolled fear. Fear can be used to our advan- 
tage if we but use it as a drive to assist us in 
facing the future with courage, fortitude 
and as much knowledge as we can obtain.

He Has Hobby 

Roy Anderson, is prett)' hep on shooting 
guns and enjoys quite a rep as a shooter bat 
his real love is making miniature trains and 
casting miniature switches, wheels, gear- 
boxes and other parts. The darn things are 
about 1 inch long and actually work and 
look like the real McCoy. Miniature trains 
are a real hobby and since talking to Roy I 
have discovered many of my own friends 
who are as nuts over the railway as I am 
over shooting. 

Yet I note on the bulletin board Sunday 
where some guy wants to trade an outboard 
motor for a set of guns. Who's the biggest 
nut? 

Enjoyed watching Myles Wilson calmly 
smoking a cigarette during the matches and 
never missing a puff between shots. First 
a puff, then a shot, another puff and another 
shot and so it went on all day long. Guess 
he must a used five packs of the smokes be- 
fore the day ended. Also enjoyed our new 
shooter from the Navy, Jack Bullock, try- 
ing to be casual, calm and collected but try- 
ing like hell to keep a steady hand and get- 
ting all the bullets on the paper.

THE WINNAH AND HIS GRIP— Milton Klipfel of the California Highway Patrol has been 
crowned champion pistol shot for 1955, having amassed 4303 points for the year. Milt believes 
in the proper grip as a means of attaining high scores. "It is important to maintain a proper, 
comfortable and consistent grip whether using a target grip or a factory one," he writes. "In 
the picture I am getting the grip I want whenever firing."

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 



April - May, 195(-, 



their annual dinner this year at the Officers' 
Club at the Oakland Army Base. Approxi- 
mately 140 were in attendance. Next to 
pistol shooting, the one other love of my 
life is FOOD — as my 200 pounds will at- 
test. Accordingly, I was at the dinner and 
did my share in stowing away the fodder. 
But here I am wandering along the paths 
of gastronomic provender when I should 
be walking with the gun slingcrs — forgive 
me! 

At this yearly clambake the new officers 
are elected for the coming year, the cham- 
pion is crowned for the year just passed and 
the boys and gals make merry and dance 
to the tunes of a delightful orchestra. As 
for me and my old stiff joints, I couldn't 
move for six days after the party. It's tak- 
ing me a long time to realize that I ain't 21 
no more but pushing the 60 mark pretty 
darn close. O well, I had a swell time any- 
how and a most happy thanks to the wives 
of Inspector Jack Ahern and Al Heath who 
are sure there when it comes to reeling to 
and fro the strains of that delightful or- 
chestra I spoke about just a few short sec- 
onds ago. 

Klipfel Wins 

Aha, sez you, but that ain't talking 
about the shooting ! ! And I agrees with you 
I ain't talking about the shooting but I sure 
will from now on, so hold on to your hats 
and away we go ! 

The gent who was crowned the Cham- 
pioti for 1956 was Milton Klipfel of the 
California Highway Patrol Team who came 
thru with 4303 points for the year. This is 
from the grand total of the five highest 
scores fired in each caliber for 1955 in Na- 
tional Matches and NRA Short Courses. 
Following a few points behind Milt was 
I'. Bob Chow, the S. F. gunsmith, with a 
total score of 4293 points. The third man 
was Captain Boomhower also of t!ic Cali- 
fornia Highway Patrol Team with 4283 
points. 

Strange, but each man was exactly 10 
points behind each other. This is the first 
time that Klipfel has taken the top prize at 
Oalvland by nosing out Chow who won 
the nod both in 1953 and again in 1954. 
Cioi.ig way back, Chow won in 1943, 1948, 
1949 and 1950, so it was a real victory for 
Milt. As a matter of fact, this is the first 
time the California Highway Patrol has 
ever won the Oakland Championship. 
RrtORDS Fai.1. 

Many records were tied in 1955 and a 
few were broken. For instance, both Chow 
and Boomhower broke the National Match 
Course with a tic of 293. Al Heath tied the 
20-shot tin til fire .22 caliber with a perfect 
score and Bill Thomes tied the 20-shot 
rapid fire scou with a 200 possible. In the 
38 caliber C. Kirkman broke the slow fire 
50yard record w'h a 189 while in the 20- 



shot rapid fire string Jaennson, Young and 
Ining all tied with a 195 equaling the 
1954 record of Chow. Well Irving also set 
a new 1955 record of 195 in the .38 gun 
for the 20-shot rapid-fire string. In the Cap 
and Ball Match, 10 shots at 25 yards, East- 
man, Reinhard and Carroll all set, and tied 
the record with a 98. Thus we have the new 
and tied records. 

There was mucho gusto in spirito among 
the pistol teams all during the year with 
some 25 or 30 teams on the lines with the 
California Highway Team consisting of 
Boomhower, Jacobs, Kolb and Thomas, 
taking the top honors for all the contesting 
groups. The Alameda Police finished first 
among the Experts with the Vallejo Team 
No. I taking the sharpshooter trophy and 
the Alameda Police Team No. 3 winning 
the Marksman Class trophy. 

The officers for 1 956 were also elected at 
the Annual Dinner with Phil Lander as 
president; Charley Boomhower, first vice 
president; Jack Ahern, second vice presi- 
dent; Ken Kolb, executive officer, Len 
Engstrom, treasurer; and Tom Monahan, 
secretary — nearly the same group who so 
ably ran the 1955 matches. 

Speaking of the matches I might add 
that this year a few changes will be in order 
for the Oakland shoots as all matches will 
be National Rifle Association Approved 
Tournaments and all individual scores will 
be forwarded to the NRA offices. The indi- 
vidual entry fee for the monthly matches 
will now be 60 cents per match and team 
entries will be $1.00 with all matches to 
start at 9:00 a.m., excepting June 2nd 
when it starts at 1 :00 p.m. A word about 
this is now in order. 

For the past two or three years a 2700 
a^^regate match has been held which has 
plci-^ed the shooters no end and is very- 
popular with the gang, but it takes two days 
of sliooting for the event with the shooting 
of the .45 matches on Saturday. As there 
ar: only three such matches it can, and 
do?s, start at 1 ;00 p. m. This will be on 
Saturday, June 2nd with Sunday, June 3rd 
finishin-; up the tournament with the .22 
and .38 guns. Otherwise all other matches 
will be held on the first Sunday of each 
month from March to December, inclusive. 

Current rules of the NRA will apply 
and this is about as it was last year with the 
usual Cap and Ball match each month with 
the exception of June and December, fol- 
lowing the .45 match. 

I have just received news that the Oak- 
land Pistol Club have elected Jay Markhajn 
as president; Clarence Boles, vice presi- 
dent; Al Flagler, recording secretary. Bill 
Archer, secretary treasurer; Merv Givan 
executive officer and Max McGinness as 
statistical officer. A nice group that should 
do a lot for the 1956 shooting program.

enforcement agencies. In its October-No- 
vember issue, this magazine carried a pic- 
ture of the Los Angeles Police Administra- 
tion Building and a story on this ultra- 
modern structure and its beneficial effect 
upon law enforcement in the Southern 
California city. 

New Features 

Like San Francisco, the various depart- 
ments of that municipality's police depart- 
ment were scattered hither and yon prior 
to consolidation under one roof with its 
attending increase in the Los Angeles Po- 
lice Department's efficiency. 

Designed by 'Welton Becket who also 
designed San Francisco's Stonestown, the 
Los Angeles structure contains many fea- 
tures that will be incorporated in the new 
building in the city by the Golden Gate 
if the voters approve the pending bond 
issue. 

It was a bond issue, passed by the citi- 
zens of Los Angeles in 1947, that made 
the new building possible. 

In 1930, the Police Department moved 
into "temporary quarters" in the then 
newly-dedicated City Hall. However, the 
rapid growth of the city soon made it 
obvious that the "temporary" quarters 
would be inadequate. 

In May, 1949, preliminary plans for a 
police building were approved but recom- 
mended alterations resulted in a delay in 
construction. During 1950 and 1951, ra- 
pidly spiraling building costs and material 
shortages resulting from the Korean 'War, 
forced a re-design of the building to con- 
form to the funds available. 

The longer San Francisco delays in cor- 
recting an obviously expensive, unhealthy 
and dangerous situation, the greater will be 
the ultimate cost as was the case in Los 
Angeles. 

The Police and Peace Officers' 
Journal urges passage of Proposition A 
at the June 5 election.

"low blow " and "foul." He definitely had 
an odor such as no beaver ever had before 
and was probably ostracized by his family. 
Cecil claimed that round. 

Joe waited about 10 days. The weather 
turned cold. The creosote stopped drip- 
ping and Joe and family happily restored 
the dam by plugging the culvert. Joe 
claimed the round. 

Cecil then came out and unplugged the 
pipe and drove a series of steel stakes just 
below the mesh and close enough together 
so Joe couldn't get through. Cecil is claim- 
ing this round and tentatively claiming 
the contest. 

As for Joe, he doesn't concede anything.

HOW TO STAY ALIVE 

1 he relatively low accident and fatality 
rites t)n freeways can be further reduced if 
iiiDturists will follow a courteous and sen- 
sible safety program of freeway driving 
"musts ", sap the California State Automo- 
bile Association. The motorists' organiza- 
tion lists the five points of the program as 
follows; 

1. Slow drivers keep to the right. Re- 
member, if you're being repeatedly passed 
on your right, you're probably in the wrong 
lane. Carefully move over to the lane far- 
thest to the right. 

2. Adjust your speed and following dis- 
tance to the flow of traffic and weather. One 
car length for each 10 m.p.h. of speed is 
advised; in other words, at 40 m.p.h. stay 
four car lengths behind the car ahead, at 30 
m.p.h. stay five car lengths. 

3. Decrease your speed and increase 
your following distance during rain or 
poor visibility; also use headlamps not 
parking lights. 

■\. Watch the signs and avoid excessive 
or abrupt lane changing by planning ahead. 
If you intend to exit at a given point, allow 
yourself plenty of time to change lanes 
easily. In all cases, look first, then be sure 
to signal and change lanes one at a time. 

*). If you miss a turn-off, don't slow up 
or engage in any erratic maneuvers. Con- 
tinue as you are, for there is only one thing 
to do in such a case and that is to go on to 
the next exit point. It is always prudent to 
study beforehand a freeway map of a city 
in which you have never driven before, but 
if yiiu do find yourself on a strange free- 
way without previous study, be extra alert 
to spot the exit you want.

THE CHIEF AND HIS FUTURE 



We live in a time of change; social, 
economic and political. Because of this, 
there has never been a greater opportunity 
for the Police executive to reaffirm the im- 
portance of his role as a specialist in his 
community, and, at the same time, take a 
vital role in the affairs of his country. For 
never before has this country so desperate- 
ly needed its police chiefs. 

There is a historical reason for this. 
Police chiefs have always been an integral 
part of good government. 

Now good government is either the 
existence of intelligent legislation, or the 
desire and detrmination for improved leg- 
islation. Therefore good government 
begins at the community level. 

From here it usually expands in size and 
gains in impetus until it reaches the state 
capital. In several instances, unfortun- 
ately, something happens at this point. 
The fresh impulse of self-determination 
that was its hallmark at the beginning 
becomes chipped with cynicism, cracked 
with disillusionment, or split wide open 
with fear; the fear of political office hold- 
ers or political aspirants. 

Thus once again legislation that would 
have provided the maximum protection for

By Jack Edward Rytten 
the most people within a given state is in- 
exorably destroyed. And once again, the 
keenest, most practical-minded police exec- 
utives are plunged back into an abyss of 
archaic laws — in some instances written 
over 30 years ago. Today in many states 
these laws just do not quadrate with exist- 
ing law enforcement problems. 

At this point it might be pertinent to 
mention parenthetically that I am a mem- 
ber of certain highly-regarded police or- 
ganizations . I am also fairly well ac- 
quainted with the ideals and objectives of 
several other professional groups in which 
I do not hold membership. These groups 
in varying degrees are dedicated to the 
lofty but nebulous proposition of "keep- 
ing politics out of police work." 

f Editor's Note: Mr. Rytten is knoivn 
to police chiefs along the Atlantic Coast 
both for his work as consultant in audio 
and recording problems and for under- 
cover work for vice and narcotics squads. 
He is a member of the Pennsylvania Chiefs 
of Police Association, the Military Police 
Association, and the Inlernatiofial Asso- 
ciation for Identification.) 

Admittedly, tiiere are occasional in- 
stances of departments that are wholly free 
of so-called "political influences." This by 
no means implies a Utopia, however, be- 
cause in such instances new and necessary 
legislation never had a chance. The com- 
munity or the state is content to live in a 
vacuum. 

Now the majority of police chiefs.

ney General then in office. As most of the 
Go\ ernon and Attorne)' Generals are lead- 
ers instead of "politicians " within the 
frame of reference in which I use it, this 
relationship usually results in highly pro- 
fessional police standards. 

It is possible that these views may be 
disquieting to some. A few more will shut 
their eyes, ostrich-fashion, to certain 
truths, thinking that by doing this the)' 
will change the state of things and remove 
the hazard such wilfuU shortsightedness 
portends. Either reaction is infantile. 

Over the years I have observed that the 
overwhelming majority of police officers 
are realistic in their thinking, decisive in 
their actions, and dedicated in their hearts. 
Because of their integrity, their motives 
have rarely been questioned. In issues 
when they have been right, their determi- 
nation has never wavered. These men are 
distinguished because they have played 
enormous roles in the social, economic and 
political lifestream of their communities. 
They were never reluctant to fight for in- 
telligent state legislation or call attention 
to an existing community need. 

It seems rather obvious then that unless 
police executives do not assume their right- 
ful role in shaping the laws of tomorrow 
with the zeal and steadfastness that they 
evince in enforcing the laws of today, that 
they are only doing part of their job. 

The suggestion that a police executive 
take an active and articulate role in the 
social and political currents of his com- 
munity does not mean that police chiefs 
should go out and electioneer for a candi- 
date or deliver a bloc of votes. A chief 
need never be committed in this fashion. 
Moreover, any man engaged in police work 
that becomes so "committed" is inviting 
the label of "stooge," and walking the 
road to despotism. 

On the other hand, police executives 
can and should press strenuously for 
revised state laws, within their respective 
states, when the need arises. In order to 
accomplish this, a working relationship 
with state legislators must be established 
and maintained. Now, no working rela- 
tionship can be established with a person 
without knowledge of the individual with 
whom one is working. 

About Politicians 

I cannot escape the conviction that un- 
less police chiefs everywhere assume the 
responsibility of enacting new legislation 
when it is needed, however thankless this 
job may seem, that eventually police de- 
partments will retrogress to a dismal low. 

You may ask: "But how do I deal with 
this politician, particularly if he is an indi- 
vidual whom I find distasteful, or someone 
that I actually distrust?" 

First, you must transcend the silly notion 
that he is an individual. Actually he is a

man that has chained himself voluntarily 
to a machine. The man knew what he was 
doing when he went into politics. You 
cannot make this man feel that it is "hon- 
orable" or "urgent." Therefore you have 
no choice but to make him afraid of nol 
securely chaining himself to his machine. 
You can do this by making him afraid of 
his party's disapproval. You can shame 
him because he is a social drone. You can 
make him reflect on his diminishing 
chances in the next election. If you want 
to throw subtlety overboard entirely, you 
can enlist the aid of newspaper friends 
and leading civic groups. In the highest 
efficiency you can make him afraid of 
social ostracization. You cannot tell him 
that it is honorable or urgent. You have to 
make him afraid. It is asinine to attempt 
to control the average politician with hon- 
or or a sense ot urgency any more. It leads 
to inefficiency and ineffective control. 
Lip Service 

During our present crime-ridden times 
that are further complicated by increased 
subversive activity, the police executive 
must strive for more clearly defined con- 
trol, because the majority of men miisl be 
subservient to the machine which ue know 
as society. 

It is all right to pay some politicians lip- 
service in newspaper editorials for the sake 
of appearances. And they eat it up because 
they are afraid. The halls of state legisla- 
tures today have lapsed into what I call 
"perpetual apprehension." Too few police 
chiefs realize this, because most chiefs are 
reluctant to take an assertive role in the 
social currents of their town, their city and 
their state. Others have never even visited 
their state legislature when it was in ses- 
sion.

mind and capacity for perceiving the trend 
of the times, need not be deterred by fear 
of consequences, or the popularity or un- 

Eopularity of his point of view, as long as 
e does not vacillate and as long as he can 
proie that he is right. 

Police executives, as I have attempted 
to point out are forced to assume the 
major share in the responsibility of govern- 
ing. If civilization as we know it is to con- 
tinue at all, not only must there be a broad- 
er concept of the (xilice department, there 
must be completely unquestioned power to 
head it. Men that shirk the enormit)- of 
such responsibilit)- should either request 
Jcmotion to a lower echelon of authorit)-, 
or better still, turn in their badges. 
Strenc,thi;ns Chief 
Despite the alarming increase in certain 
categories of crime in 19^6, the American 
[Tolice chief with his enormous intellec- 
tual reservoirs, moral fibre, and investiga- 
tive techniques has proven that he is invin- 
cible .-igainst "Political pressure groups." 
If given effective laws in state and fecleral 
courts of search and seizure, it is a matter 
of record that he can deal with equal force-

fulness with narcotics pushers, vice prob- 
lems, purveyors of obscene literature, and 
other crime problems requiring every in- 
genious investigative device. He can also 
deal with labor agitators and venal so- 
called "liberal" and "civil rights" groups 
that frequently are only the offal and resi- 
due of the Communist party. 

In order to do this effectively, he must 
have the laws of his state on his side. 
When these laws do not exist, he must 
leave no stone unturned to see that intel- 
ligent legislation is enacted at once. Other- 
wise the scepter will eventually pass to 
other hands; perhaps a National Police 
Force. Should this tragedy ever occur, 
local law enforcement as we know it will 
recede into limbo. 

Give Up Rights 

If the law enforcement is ever consol- 
idated under one such central control, the 
responsibility will fall inescapably on local 
law enforcement executives because of 
their apathy, fear, or appeasement. Ap- 
peasement in any form is surrender on the 
installment plan. Should this happen to 
law enforcement, it will result in our first

relinquishing our inviolate States Rights, 
and ultimately usher in the birth of an 
authoritarian control like that which exists 
in the Iron Curtain countries. 

I believe that our American judicial sys- 
tem is unsurpassed anywhere. Further- 
more, I wholeheartedly advocate the con- 
cept of "due process of law." But let us 
make it so diffuse with conflicting senti- 
mentalities of public opinion such as "the 
right to privacy" versus "better police pro- 
tection" that it does nothing except neu- 
tralize itself completely, while we with our 
investigative techniques sit back and vacil- 
late until another crime strikes our com- 
munity, and organized crime everywhere 
gets a big drop on us. 

Help Available 

Your county prosecutors and states' at- 
torneys are on your side. They are your al- 
lies, because like you, they are law enforce- 
ment officers. They are also in an ideal 
"liaison" position between your depart- 
ment and your state legislature. Call on 
them. They rely on you for evidence. Their 
office depends strongly on your investiga- 
tive know-how. Urge them not to fetter 
and stultify their own energies and man- 
power of your department by permitting 
antiquated laws to exist that nullify your 
single endeavor: to give the maximum pro- 
tection to the most people. 

At present there is a real need for broad- 
er legislation permitting the use of tele- 
phone wiretapping. The lACP is to be ap- 
plauded for the stand it has taken with the 
Federal Government in its statement to the 
House of Representatives. This statement 
of objectives was predicated on realistic 
thinking and the personal knowledge of 
police problems by America's most out- 
standing police chiefs. Regardless of the 
outcome of Federal legislation, states will 
continue to enact their own laws. Audio 
has made enormous strides in the last 5 
years. Additional laws should be enacted 
governing the use of tape recordings of 
room and cell conversations. These are 
frequently of vital importance in evidence. 
yet many states fail to admit them into any 
trial proceedings. 

Our leading scientists have not failed 
the police chief, nor has the police chief 
failed his community. But unless we all 
share in the epoch job keeping legislation 
in pace with modern scientific methods of 
crime detection, the police chief will have 
failed his profession and himself. 

The opportunity has never been greater. 
The time is now.

PARKING LIGHTS 

The California Highway Patrol reports 
that many motorists are still using parking 
lights as driving lights. 

"The law prohibits the use of parking 
lights as driving lights at times when head- 
lights or foglights are required, " declared 
Patrol Commissioner B. R. Caldwell. "This 
law was necessary to correct an obviously 
dangerous practice. 

"Parking lights when used as running 
or driving lights have a tendency to deceive 
other drivers by creating illusions of dis- 
tance and speed of oncoming vehicles. 

"We urge every driver to develop the 
habit of lighting the headlights, not the 
parking lights, when first turning on car 
lights at dusk or whenever impaired visi- 
bility requires lights," Caldwell continued. 

"This well help other drivers and pedes- 
trians see your vehicle better and will pro- 
vide more safety at times when our traffic 
accident rate is highest." 

COP GETS JOB 

John H. Kragie, 33, former Chicago 
Park District police officer, has joined the 
held staff of the Traffic Division of the 
International Association of Chiefs of Po- 
lice and the Traffic Institute of North- 
western University. 

Ray Ashworth, acting director of both 
organizations, said Kragie will serve as a 
held representative, conducting studies of 
city, county, and state police traffic super- 
vision programs. He will work out of the 
headquarters office at Evanston, Illinois.

THE GUN'S ALWAYS LOADED 



The sport of hunting has reached such 
wide popularity that better than one out of 
ten Americans takes to the field or forest 
with gun in arm each year. Something akin 
to the recent growth in motoring, or boat- 
ing, fishing, camping or skiing, the turn to 
hunting reflects the desire to spend our 
new leisure out-of-doors. 

There is indeed a strong relationship 
between all these sports and automobile 
driving, says the California State Automo- 
bile Association. Cars and highways have 
shortened distances and opened new vistas; 
they lead to streams, bays and lakes for the 
fisherman and boatsman, to remote parks 
and forests for the camper and winter 
playgrounds for the skier. 

But there is an even more particular link 
when it comes to hunting. 

Risk Is Great 

This was pointed out recently by Frank 
Daniel, who, as secretary of the National 
Rifle Association, is a top authority on guns 
and gunning. Though his own forte is tar- 
get shooting, rather than hunting game, 
his experience with firearms and his close 
contact with enthusiasts everywhere mark 
him as one of the best in the business, a 
man worth listening to whether you're a 
novice raising a gun for the first time or 
an old timer. 

"This year," he said, "nearly 17,000,000 
sportsmen will be out hunting game. The 
number has practically doubled since the 
war. In fact, there are nearly a million new 
hunters every' year. 

"Almost all of them will get to their 
hunting grounds by automobile. Some of 
them will have accidents and get hurt. 
Needless accidents, which could properly 
be avoided by a degree of care and fore- 
sight." 

What kind of accidents ? He reflected on 
the question as he sat in the comfortable 
living-room of his old Georgian home on 
Virginia's historic Mason neck, a few miles 
below Mount Vernon. On the mantel above 
the fireplace was a handsome old Kentucky 
muzzle loader. Shades of Daniel Boone ! 

Watch That Gun 

Frank brought out a report prepared by 
the NRA on causes of hunting accidents. 
"Twenty per cent of all casualties are 



caused by the accidental discharge of guns 
either being removed or placed in the car, 
or by guns improperly carried in the auto- 
mobile," he said. 

As Frank explained it, the simplest 
rule is: 

Never carry a loaded gun in an automo- 
bile. If it isn't loaded it can't go off acci- 
dentally. At the same time, the hunter 
should consider every gun loaded until he 
has personally examined it and found the 
magazine and chamber empty. 

In taking a gun out of the car, it should 
not be dragged by its muzzle. Nor should 
it ever be leaned against an automobile (or, 
for that matter, a fence, a tree or a wall) . 

How many hunting accidents are there 
each year .' 

One Too Many 

"Actually," as Frank Daniel pointed out, 
"these casualties are relatively few, despite 
the vast amount of publicity which they 
inevitably receive. Consider there are some 
17,000,000 hunters and an annual total of 
2,000 accidents. Compared with other types 
of accidents, such as drowning, the number 
is small. 

"But even one accident is one too many 



Your realty problems should be the problems of

— particularly when it is a case of careless- 
ness born of lack of training and inade- 
quate knowledge of firearms." 

Just as the American Automobile Asso- 
ciation believes in the principle of driver 
training in the promotion of safe driving, 
the National Rifle Association conducts 
extensive courses in hunter safety. Through 
its 8,000 affiliated clubs and in school 
courses aimed at reaching young people 
when they first become acquainted with 
firearms, the NRA endeavors to promote 
an awareness of safe gun handling, good 
shooting and the hunter's responsibility.

In short," Frank said, "in this case 
knowledge is not a dangerous thing. The 
basic rules to which every hunter should 
adhere are a guarantee of his safety and of 
enjoyment of his sport." 

GUN RULES 

1 . Treat every gun with the respect due 
a loaded gun. This is the first rule of 
gun safety. 

2. Guns carried into camp or home, or 
when other^\ise not in use, must al- 
ways be unloaded, and taken down 
or have actions open; guns always 
should be carried in cases to the 
shooting area. 

3. Always be sure barrel and action are 
clear of obstructions, and that you use 
only ammunition of the proper size 
for the gun you are carrying. Remove 
oil and grease from chamber before 
firing. 

-4. Always carry your gun so that you 
can control the direction of the muz- 
zle, even if you stumble. 

'>. Be sure of your target before you 
pull the trigger; know the identify- 
ing features of the game you intend 
to hunt. 

Unload Guns 

6. Never point a gun at anything you 
do not want to shoot; avoid all horse- 
play while handling a gun. 

7. Unattended guns should be unload- 
ed; guns and ammunition should be 
stored separately beyond reaih ol 
children and careless adults. 

8. Never climb a tree or fence or jump 
a ditch with a loaded gun; never 
pull a gun toward you by the muzzle. 

9. Never shoot a bullet at a flat, hard 
surface or the surface of water; when 
at target practice, be sure your back- 
stop is adequate. 

10. Avoid alcoholic drinks before or dur- 
ing shooting. 
Remember, it doesn't cancel out the trag- 
edy to say, after it has occurred, "I thought 
the gun wasn't loaded. " Too many persons 
have been killed by "unloaded" guns. Treat 
that gun with care and respect. It's a killer!

ELECTRONICS CONTROL TRAFFIC 



Evansville, Indiana, with a severe cross- 
town traffic problem and an inadequate 
traffic control system, is going to install 
one of the most modern systems — elec- 
tronically interconnected traffic control- 
lers. 

This new and revolutionary method 
controls traffic signal lights by FM radio. 
Here's how it works: When a change in 
the timing of signals in the system is re- 
quired because of a change in traffic load, 
a master controller at police headquarters 
sends out its signal. Instead of power go- 
ing over a wire to operate relays in the in- 
tersection controllers, the power goes into 
electronic equipment. The radio transmit- 
ter goes on the air, transmits the tone of a 
certain frequency assigned to that particu- 
lar function and goes off the air, all auto- 
matically. At the intersection, a radio re- 
ceiver picks up the signal, actuates the 
necessary relays, and makes the changes in 
signal timing. Fift)'-four intersections in 
downtown Evansville will be controlled 
by this method. 

In explaining the system, Paul W. Rice, 
City Traffic Engineer of Evansville, Indi- 
ana, says: 

"The need for a modernized traffic con- 
trol system became apparent when it was 
realized that the City of Evansville was 
operating 17 different systems in effect, 
with little coordination between them. 
While traffic signals at 16 downtown in- 
tersections operating from one secondary 
controller wtre interconnected to some ex- 
tent, 15 others independent intersections, 
added as the city grew, had no physical 
connection. Adding three other intersec- 
tions which were interconnected but not in 
to any master system, we had an arrange- 
ment that severely limited the efficient con- 
trol of traffic flow. 

Traffic Increase 

"Coupled with this outmoded traffic sig- 
nal system was the increase in traffic vol- 
ume. Traffic calculated at a number of 
locations throughout the business district 
showed an increase of 60 per cent during 
the past five years. Our survey also reveal- 
ed that roughly half of the traffic using the 
streets in the downtown area had no des- 
tination in that area; it was crosstown traf- 
fic travel undesirably circulating within the 
district. There is no direct crosstown route 
by-passing the business district. To get 
from one end of the city to the other, 
traveling from east to west, you must enter 
the diagonal street grid system which 
makes up downtown Evansville. With 



Evansvilles population approaching 130,- 
000 and with motor vehicle registrations 
increasing in the last five years by 41 per 
cent, this problem has become acute. 

"The public, in general, little realizes 
the planning and engineering required to 
integrate a traffic signal control system. 
Traffic signals of a city are normally di- 
vided into groups for better control. A 
group of signals can be timed and synchro- 
nized for coordinated operation. Synchro- 
nization consists of timing the signals on 
a street so that a vehicle can theoretically 
travel, at a predetermined rate of speed, 
through a number of intersections without 
stopping. Also, the timing of the signals 
can be changed at intervals during the day 
to conform to the changes in traffic flow 
for better traffic control. 

Master Control 

"To synchronize and integrate a system, 
each traffic signal and local traffic control- 
ler in a group needs to be connected with 
a master controller. The normal functions 
of the signal system are supervised by a 
program timer, located in the master con- 
troller. The program timer controls changes 
in signal operation by sending electrical

intersection are controlled by an individ- 
ual local traffic controller into which the 
intersection timing function is preset 
awaiting selection by the master controller. 

Interconnection of the programming de- 
vice and master controller to the local traf- 
fic controller is usually performed by mul- 
ti-conductor cable. When possible, this 
cable is laid underground in public utilit)' 
ducts or subways. If these are not available, 
the multi-conductor cable is either strung 
overhead or buried in the ground. 
Seek Best Way 
"Keeping all this in mind, we then went 
about looking for the best way to modern- 
ize our traffic control system. The conven- 
tional method of interconnection of all 
controls with an underground cable system 
was first considered. This would have been 
expensive. Cables, conduits, and installa- 
tion costs alone would be in excess of 
$72,000. It would have been necessary to 
put in all new cables since our existing 
cable was so bad it could not be pulled out 
or reused. Another important factor to 
consider would have been the disruption 
of downtown traffic due to torn up streets. 

Merchants conservatively estimated that 
it would cost them over $20,000, in busi- 
ness lost while streets were being torn up 
for installation of the cable. We consid- 
ered using overhead instead of under- 
ground wiring for 22 blocks of our sys- 
tem, thereby cutting our interconnection 
costs to $'57,^00. Although this figure was 
much lower, it meant that streets still had 
to be torn up and that there would be un- 
sightly overhead wires at the intersections. 
The possibility of using fire alarm system 
ducts, or telephone leascd-wire services 
was investigated but these facilities were 
found to be inadequate. 

Tone Pulses 

"Then we heard of the electronic system 
and contacted the General Electric Com- 
pany, the manufacturers. The electronic 
equipment, known as the "building block" 
design is GE s latest Progress Line design- 
ed especially for this type of work and 
consists of a master tone translator, an FM 
transmitter, and intersection tone transla- 
tor. The master tone translator receives the

signal from the master controller, and con- 
verts the signal into tone pulses which are 
fed through the FM transmitter. These 
tone pulses are transmitted to the intersec- 
tion tone translators, which in turn convert 
this information to the original signal volt- 
age which would normally appear on inter- 
connecting cable. The signal is then fed 
into the local traffic controller and the nec- 
essary relays are actuated. The FM radio 
controlled method eliminates the need to 
excavate under the streets or the need for 
overhead cables for interconnection. The 
disruption of traffic load, which is most im- 
portant, is held to a minimum. 

"There are many other advantages. For 
example, it is easy to expand this system. 
To add signals at an intersection, you need 
only add traffic signals, a local traffic con- 
troller and an intersection tone translator 
to the existing system. The units can be re- 
moved and reinstalled and/or interchanged 
at different locations, making the system 
very flexible. Additional functions such as 
fire lane, and civil defense warnings can be 
worked into the system by adding only 
additional tones, tone switches and relays 
into existing units. All controls can be op- 
erated from a single location for fast effi- 
cient centralized control. Also, in the inter- 
connecting cable method, any cable damage 
would put the remaining section of the sys- 
tem out of operation. In the FM radio con- 
trol system, only that one intersection 
which is having difficulty would be out of 
operation. If there is any disruption of the 
radio portion of the system, the signals 
will still continue to operate on the last 
cycle set by the master controller. 

Below Estimate 

"Although this system is not the least 
expensive, its cost is below our original 
estimate. Including installation, the elec- 
tronic equipment will cost the City of 
Evansville $61,600. According to our orig- 
inal contract, controllers, signals and other 
associated equipment costs were $58,899- 
Added to this was an installation figure of 
$67,837. This total of slightly more than 
$180,000 was considerably below the 
$225,000 bond issue voted for this pur- 
pose. Because of the savings realized, we 
are able to further modernize and stand- 
ardize the entire system by eliminating 14 
mast-arm signals and replacing them with 
standard post mounted signals. The mast- 
arm signals can then be used in the more 
isolated intersections of the city. This addi- 
tional equipment brought our entire ex- 
penditure to approximately $202,000. 

While we do not anticipate that the FM 
radio traffic control system will solve all 
our traffic problems, we do think it will be 
a great contribution towards the efficient 
handling of traffic in our downtown area."

you A ROCKHOUND? 



If you happen to be out motoring in 
t.ie country one day and see some men, 
women, and children with dusty slacks 
and shirts, cloth bags slung over their 
shoulders, and little combination hammer- 
picks in hand, you've probably spotted 
some rockhounds. 

Rockhounds are an interesting outdoor 
breed, stirred to their activity by a variety 
of motivations. Some are after rocks be- 
cause it gives them a good excuse to get 
out in the country. Some are after rocks 
because they want to build or decorate a 
patio, walk, or fish ixjol. Others are out 
there because they like to collect things, 
and many a rock stripped of its dust and its 
outer crust can be a "thing of beauty and 
.1 )oy forever." 

This matter of collecting the rocks that 
can be turned into something of beauty 
is a real hobby, too, says the National Auto- 
mobile Club in describing the hobby. Such 
ollectors keep a sharp eye out for items 
i kc jade, jasper, quartz, and agate. These

they can spot from cjuite a distance, and 
once they have popped them into the bag 
and taken them home, they really go to 
work on them. They clean them, facet 
them, they trim them to just the shape 
they want. They polish them to a high, 
high gloss, bring out all the warm, strong 
beauty of the brightly colored veins. And 
then they make mounts for them from 
silver or some other metal and use them 
to decorate a necklace or a ring. 

Even in the field, however, the rock- 
hounds have their fun. Theres the country- 
side to wander through on a sunny day. 
There's the companionship and the picnics 
in the open. And there is, of course, al- 
ways the strong possibility that they'll hap- 
pen across some rare find such as sand- 
stone that bends, or sand that has been 
fused into glass by lightning, or a rugged 
little boulder that sets the Geiger counter 
to popping. 

Its hopes like that that help to make 
rockhounds.

USE ASH TRAYS 

A motorist hurled a lighted cigar butt 
out the window. The air stream blew the 
cigar through the open rear window onto 
the back seat — as usually happens when 
the rear window is open. The seat caught 
afire. Because of the speed of the car, the 
fire was not noticed by the driver until 
the rear section was in flames. With ash 
trays in the front compartment of all cars, 
as well as both front and back seats of 
most modern cars, there is no excuse for 
throwing lighted cigars and cigarettes 
from moving vehicles. Such practice is a 
bad habit which should be corrected. This 
nation could be saved heaNy fire losses 
every year if smokers would use the ash 
trays provided in automobiles. 

AUTOMATIC LIGHT 

If you happen to be one of those canny 
folk who switch the light out each time 
they leave the room for a few moments, 
you'll probably be delighted with the latest 
development in these highway billboards. 
Now, according to the National Automo- 
bile Club, the engineers are equipping 
these big boards with a little electronic 
unit that reacts to your car's headlights, 
turns on the light at the board when your 
car approaches, then turns them off when 
you've passed. No longer will Cur\'aceous 
Cutie be all lit up to smile her approval 
of some superlative product, and waste her 
sweetness on the lonely night air. 

WHISKEY HILL 

The town of Freedom in Santa Cruz 
was probably named with a touch of irony. 
Prior to prohibition it was known as 
Whiskey Hill. 

Historians by no means agree that the 
present Drakes Bay was the site where 
Drake landed in 1595. Some contend that 
he actually landed at Bodega Bay while 
others say he landed in San Francisco Bay, 
the California State Automobile Associa- 
tion says.

After 14 years as an officer on the Sac- 
ramento Police Department, the first year 
as a patrolman and then bein^ assigned to 
the detective division, Robert Doyle, or 
Bob to his legion of friends on the force 
and to hundreds of Sacramento business- 
men, has established a modern cabinet 
and fixture business in Sacramento upon 
resigning from the department. 

Before joining the Sacramento Police 
Department, "Bob" was a popular sports 
reporter on the Lodi Keus-Seiilinel for a 
number of years. But all the time wood- 
work had been his hobby. Now he has 
turned a hobby into a business. 

During his many years on the Crime 
Detail he helped solve Several cases that 
received widespread publicity. 

Expressing the feelings of many law 
enforcement officers who came in contact 
with Doyle during his police activity, 
Chief of Police James Hicks of Sacra- 
mento, had this to say upon Bob's retire- 
ment: 

"We hate to see him leave the depart- 
ment. He has been a fine police officer and 
has always done a good job. He really will 
be missed by the Sacramento Depart- 
ment." 

Well known to many officers of the law 
in Northern California, particularly in San 
Francisco where he had worked in close 
cooperation with the San Francisco De- 
partment on numerous occasions, business- 
man Doyle, extends an invitation to all 
old friends to visit his modern woodwork 
shop when in Sacramento. It is located at 
1709 "S" Street.

trouble.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO? 



Page iy 



Personnel 

"What would you do if, while having 

dipner with your family, your 'phone rang 

and a man said to you, 'I can't tell you who 

I am, but you know me and you've done 
me some favors in the past so I want to do 
one for you. Your partner is taking bribes 
for staying away from a tavern located on 
your beat. The prosecutor knows about 
this and is going to have a subpoena issued 
tomorrow to have your partner appear be- 
fore the grand jury.' 

"You are due to meet your partner at 

I I o'clock to ride your shift. What action 
will you take ? Will you call up and report 
sick.' Will you tell your partner? What 
will you do?" 

The above hypothetical situation was 
presented to the officers of the Grand 
Rapids Police Department in their regular 
monthly in-ser\'ice training class. The sub- 
ject under discussion was "Rumors. " The 
officers were not forewarned that a written 
answer to the above situation would be 
asked for, although the chapter in the 
booklet, from which the above was taken, 
had been assigned for reading at the pre- 
vious monthly meeting. Blank paper was

Evaluation of the answers was the next 
step. What did the answers indicate ? Were 
there any conclusions that could be drawn 
from the answers ? In an attempt to find a 
solution, the figures given in the tabula- 



By Andrew R. 'Vanderveen 
Technician, Civil Service Board, Gra)td Rapids, 
passed out to all class attendees and each 
was asked to write his solution to the prob- 
lem and hand it in, unsigned. I felt it was 
important that the papers be unsigned so 
that each man could express his feeling 
without fear that he would be called upon 
to defend his answer. As it turned out this 
was a good deduction because most of the 
writings were very frank and pointed. 

About ten minutes time was allowed the 
class to write their answers. More time 
might have been used by a few of the 
officers because their answers indicated a 
desire to explore the problem more fully. 
By and large, however, ten minutes was 
quite adequate for the majority, the class 
was informed that all papers would be 
read and the answers tabulated as to con- 
tent. 

The classification of the answers was 
for the most part quite simple. They gen- 
erally fell into one of the four categories 
listed below. There were, a few answers 
that presented the ideas of more than one 
category and these were difficult to tabu- 
late. The first idea presented served as the 
basis for classification. The results were as 
follows :

tion were reduced to percentages in order 
that the Patrolmen Group answers and the 
Superior Officer Group answers could be 
viewed from the same base. The percent- 
ages are as follows :

The one fact that impressed me was the 
relatively few answers that indicated the 
person would "Contact my superior Offi- 
cer concerning the call." One conclusion 
that could be drawn from this is that the 



men lack confidence in their superior offi- 
cers. Whether such an inference is valid is 
difficult to confirm. It is important to note 
that the largest percentage of the answers 
fell into the category of "Do or say pothing 



Michigan 

about the call." This was to be expected 
in view of the content of the study assign- 
ment for the period. The lesson decried 
the passing on of rumors and propaganda, 
and many of the men apparently took to 
heart the material presented in this lesson. 
The replies indicating that the person 
would "Inform his partner of the call" 
would seem to stem from the closeness of 
the relationship between partners. Some of 
the answers in this category stated that the 
partner had a "right" to know about the 
call without indicating how the "right" 
had been acquired. The miscellaneous cat- 
egory includes those answers which do not 
fit the other categories and for the most 
part these replies were "No comment." 
This could indicate a lack of imagination 
or, perhaps a lack of desire to cooperate 
in a class project. One might hazard a 
guess that this type of answer comes from 
the constant griper, the fellow who is dis- 
satisfied with his job and lot in life. 

Dan Hollingsworth, author of the text 
from which the hypothetical situation was 
taken, in response to an inquiry, had this 
to say about the "test" and particularly 
about the "lack of confidence in superior

utficers" conclusion. He stated that to make 
a flat universal statement that police patrol- 
men lacked confidence in their command- 
ing oflicers was impossible. However, he 
tccis that there is a tendenc)' in that direc- 
tion in a number of departments. He 
stated, further, that he felt this was due to 
the strongly individualistic nature of the 
average police ofllicer; that an officer work- 
ing in a department operating under con- 
flicting policies, prcKedures, tolerances, 
and philosophies tends to develop a per- 
sonal philosophy of "if there is that much 
argument gomg on my ideas are just as 
good as the next fellow's, or those of my 
superior officers." 

The individual answers, the tabulations, 
and Mr. Hollingsworth's letter were pre- 
sented at the next class session, for inform- 
ation and discussion. As might be antici- 
pated the discussion was lively and at times 
heated. There was some disagreement with 
the concept that the answers indicated a 
lack of confidence in superior officers. In- 
terestingly, the greatest dissent came from 
the superior officers themselves. Perhaps 
they were unwilling to admit any degree 
of personal failure or that their subordin- 
ates do not have the utmost confidence in 
them. 

When the tabulations were presented to 
the class and before any general dicussion 
began, the question, "What is your eval- 
uation of the replies" was put to the group. 
One officer stated that there was no Ques- 
tion in his mind as to the meaning of the 
replies. In his opinion the replies indicat- 
ed lack of confidence in superior officers. 
Another participant officer stated that in 
his opinion if the answers to the problem 
had been signed the resulting tabulation 
would have been quite diflferent and that 
the indicated lack of confidence would not 
have been shown. 

In summary I can say that this "test " 
and the resulting tabulation of answers 
provided the class with several hours of 
good discussion. It is in this t)pe of dis- 
cussion that real learning takes place. I 
feel that a great deal of good has accrued 
to the Grand Rapids Police Department as 
a result of this experiment. If similar tests 
are made in other police departments, I 
would be very interested in receiving a 
report concerning the results — as well as 
comments about our Grand Rapids depart- 
ment.

ROMANTIC FARALLONES 



Get up on a high hill in or around San 
Francisco on a clear day, peer out across 
the Pacific Ocean, and you're almost sure 
to see out there on the horizon the Faral- 
lone Islands rising from the sea. Deriving 
their name from the Spanish word mean- 
ing "small pointed island," the Farallones 
comprise a southern group of seven islands 
and, almost eight miles away, a less im- 
portant northern group. 

This little group of islands to the west 
of the Golden Gate, according to the Na- 
tional Automobile Club, has had many a 
strange and dramatic episode in its long 
history. Under the supervision of the 
Lighthouse Service since 1855, the islands 
serve as the seat of one of the first and 
most important light stations on the Pa- 
cific Coast. They are also the seat of a geo- 
detic station, one that provides us with 
valuable data on the movements along the 
great San Andreas fault. 

At an earlier period the islands came to 
the attention of the Russian colony at Bo- 
dega Bay and Russian fur sealers moved 
out to them to take more than 200,000 
fur seals in three seasons. Such was the 
slaughter that the fur seals left the islands 
and have only returned in very small num- 
bers since. 

Back in 1849 and in the early '50's,

when the gold seekers flooded into San 
Francisco, the islands played an important 
part in supplying food to the city. At that 
time an egg brought anywhere from one to 
three dollars, and some enterprising poach- 
ers went to the islands to collect the large, 
tough-shelled, and fairly tasty eggs of the 
murres. Armed with shovels and wearing 
large coats with many pockets to hold the 
eggs, the poachers swept over the islands 
picking up every egg in sight. In 1853 one 
ship came back to San Francisco with 
twelve thousand eggs collected in two 
days! 

At another time, the rabbits passed by 
an English captain to the keeper of the 
light on the islands multiplied so rapidly 
that they ate all the feed the islands could 
grow, and then proveeded to die of starva- 
tion.

What any officer can advise the citizen 
in any community, as outlined by Captain 
Murray: 

Don't leave your house or apartment 
until you are sure that every door and win- 
dow is securely fastened. 

Don't, when you leave home, advertise 
the fact by pulling down the window 
shades or by leaving a note in the letter 
box that you will be back at such a time, or 
by requesting that goods be delivered to 
the janitor. 

Don't leave your key under the door 
mat. 

Don't think that an open window is safe 
from intnision because it is not near a fire 
escape. Flat thieves use both ropes and lad- 
ders. 

Don't fail to bolt your dumb waiter 
door. 

Don't rely on ordinary locks to secure 
your apartment. 

Don't fail to investigate when someone 
rings your bell and fails to come up to your 
apartment after you have pushed the but- 
ton. 

Don't leave your home in total darkness 
when you go out at night. 

Don't neglect to try your door when you 
go out, to make sure it is locked. Snap locks 
do not always work properly. 

Don't overlook your rear doors and win- 
dows on leaving home. Remember the ofli- 
cers on patrol see only the front of your 
home. 

Don't depend on window fasteners that 
can be opened by a table knife. 

Don't fail to install a door chain on en- 
trance doors. This chain is an excellent 
protection for women folks. 

Don't leave your skylight or roof doors 
unfastened. 

Don't fail to change your locks when 
keys have been lost or stolen.

THAT WORD "COP" 

Lloyd L. King, chaplain of the Florida 
Peace Ollicers' Associatioin, Orlando, Fla., 
sent this letter to Editor & Publisher, news- 
paper trade journal, which published it in 
a recent issue: 

"The Orlando Morning Sentinel now 
agrees to omit use of the word 'cop in 
stories and heads as applied to police offi- 
cers. Is this decision a first' as far as 
daily newspapers are concerned? 

The elimination of the word requested 
by Lloyd L. King, chaplain to over 4,000 
members of the Florida Peace Officers' As- 
sociation, who described the term as of- 
fending, lacking in dignity deser%'ed by 
lawmen.' The chaplain believed such ac- 
tion would lift policemen to a higher level 
of public and self respect. It would en- 
hance the necessary cooperation betwen 
newspapers and police officers. 

"My high regard for the prestige of 
Editor & Publisher among those in the 
publishing profession encourages me to 
enlist your aid, editorially, to persuade 
other editors in this direction. " 



MANY HEADACHES 

State revenues from excise taxes on 
wholesale distribution of alcoholic bever- 
ages in California during 1955 totaled 
$28,795,990— an increase of $9 million or 
45.3 percent over the revenues realized 
from 1954 distributions, according to fig- 
ures released today by George R. Reilly, 
First District Member of the State Board 
of Equalization. Seven-eighths of this in- 
crease, or $7,846,000, is accounted for by 
the tax hike on hard liquor which went 
mto effect July 1, 1954. Of the total rev- 
enues, $24,555,386, or over 85 percent, 
was collected on distilled spirits; $3,697,- 
725, or 13 percent , on beer; and the re- 
maining $542,878, or 2 jiercent, on wine. 
In addition, $3,130,000 has been collected 
as floor tax on stocks of distilled spirits in 
dealers' hands on July 1, 1955, which had 
been taxed at the old rate. 

Sales of distilled spirits in 1955 for 
California consumption, taxed currently at 
$1.50 a gallon by the State, amounted to 
20,954,000 gallons, up 6.3 percent over 
1954. Beer distribution, bearing a two 
cent tax per gallon, totaled 184,318.000 
as compared with 177.700,000 gallons 
during the earlier year. Wine moving into 
trade channels for California consumption 
hist year amounted to 26.319,000 gallons 
and was taxed at rates of $.01 and $.02 a 
gallon, except for a relatively small vol- 
ume of sparkling wines which was taxed at 
$.03 a gallon. The total gallonage of wine 
sold List year was 5.4 percent above that 
sold in 1954.

A MAN IN BLUE. ON HIS BEAT 

The streets and crosswalks echo shouts 

As the bells of school ring again, 

And little forms dart here and there. 

While healthy laughter multiplies the din. 

Then a little tvhistle splits the morning air. 

All eyes turn quickly toward the street 

And standing there, they see a friend 

A Man in blue — on his beat. 

A mother smiles softly as she hurries past, 

Her children are safe again today. 

A father's hello holds a warmer tone 

For the policemen on duty across the way. 

Neither can he read in the officer's mind, 

His thoughts of duty and care. 

But children ivho pass have an inner sense. 

About the one standing there. 

For nine long months — ever alert. 

In the rain, the cold and the snow, 

Guarding the paths from home and school. 

Is that man we all should know. 

With death and injury aligning themselves 

To tvage war on young running feet. 

There winning the fight through courage and might 

Is the Man in blue — on his beat.

LOS ANGELES IGNORANCE 

A $10,000 study commissioned by the 
tity fathers of Los Angeles to find out how 
much residents know about the operation 
of their government has revealed astonish- 
ing ignorance among the populace. Ques- 
tions posed to some 2,000,000 inhabitants, 
82 per cent of whom have hved in Los 
Angeles for five years or more, show that 
15 do not know the name of the mayor, 
Norris Poulson, and 70 per cent cannot 
name their city councilman (of which there 
are fifteen). Sixty per cent do not know 
what a bond issue is, and half do not know 
what a balanced budget is — facts which 
help explain to city administrators the 
voters' failure to approve several recent 
routine bond issues. 

Half the Los Angeleans quizzed don't 
know they've voted for sewer construction, 
although all sewer projects have to be ap- 
proved by the electorate. Half are under the 
mistaken impression that the city has a cig- 
arette tax, and half think the city (rather 
than the county) issues marriage licenses. 
Half don't know the location of the main 
library. 

The city administration, which spon- 
sored the study in an effort to find out peo- 
ple's attitudes on city problems and ser^•ices 
and impressions of areas of municipal res- 
ponsibility, can take heart from the f^act that 
two-thirds believe if they went to City Hall 
with a problem, they would get prompt ac- 
tion.— /Iw^r/cd/; Municipal News 



STARTING MADE EASY 

When an automobile that is etjuippcd 
with an automatic choke fails to start 
readily, turn the ignition on, press the 
gas pedal clear to the floor and hold it 
there until the engine starts. Pumping the 
gas throttle, makes starting difficult by 
flooding the carburetor, says the California 
State Automobile Association.

LETTERS 




TO THE 



EDITOR 



Dear Mr. Cullenward: 

I wish to express my sincere apprecia- 
tion for the Police and Peace Officers' 
current issue sent both to Mr. Markell and 
myself. I certainly enjoyed reading it for I 
recognized several persons that are in and 
out of the Police Department. 

May I add that the Journal is excellently 
prepared and each article keeps your in- 
terest. 

I was very much surprised and puzzled 
by how that picture drifted to your Journal 
but many thanks for putting us in print. 

Wishing you and your staff excellent ma- 
terial for the future, 

■Very truly yours, 
(Sgd) G. E. Murphy. 

(Editor's Note): Mr. Murphy refers 
to a picture printed on page 9 of the 
January-February Journal of himself and 
Bill Markel, two wellknown San Fran- 
cisco marksmen. 
The Editor: 

May I congratulate the Police and 
Peace Officers' Journal for the fair 
and impartial way the recent changes in 
police department personnel were handled. 
After the hysteria indulged in by some pub- 
lications, your treatment of what happened 
when a new administration took office, was 
refreshing indeed. 

(Name withheld on request) 
A Police Officer 
Dear Sir: 

I sure hope the powers that be at the 
City Hall read your story and saw your pic- 
ture of the Los Angeles Police Administra- 
tion Building. I note that you are support- 
ing a movement to have a new building for 
San Francisco to replace rat-infested Hall 
of Justice. More power to you ! 

Bruce Garvin. 
The Editor: 

Wasn't there a law passed a couple of 
years ago with teeth in it to permit the po- 
lice to arrest slow-poke drivers hogging the 
center of California's highways? I am a

E. S. T. 

(Editor's Note) : There is a law. En- 
forcement lies with the Highway Patrol 
and we are sure it is doing its best with 
the manpower available. 

Sirs: 

As a whole, your magazine is very good. 
But one innovation that would make it 
even better would be to have test questions 
reprinted from former promotional exams.

WALK TO RIGHT 

When walking at night, walk right. 

When you're walking at night and are 
surrt)undcd by the brilliant glare of head- 
lights you're inclined to feel that such a 
brilliant glare must throw you into bold 
relief, must make you easily visible to the 
drivers of cars, trucks and buses. But if 
you'll just recall what you yourself see 
when you're behind the wheel of your car 
at night, you'll realize that this is not so. 
Even the best of modern headlights, ac- 
cording to the National Automobile Club, 
cannot compare with sunlight and, out 
near the end of that beam, shapes and 
shadows can blend and blur in a confusing 
way. 

When walking at night make yourself 
easier to sec by wearing or carr)ing some- 
thing white. If walking along the oficn 
road, carry a lighted flashlight and walk 
on the left side facing into the oncoming 
trartic. And on all occasions assume that 
the drivers just can't see you. 

When walking at night, walk right.

MOTELS COME TO TOWN 



Motels, once found only on the open 
highway or on the outskirts of the city, are 
moving into town. 

It's making the big city a more hospit- 
able place for the motoring tourist and pro- 
viding an answer to his oft-heard guestion : 
'"What'll we do with the car when we get 
there?" 

Today, points out the National Automo- 
bile Club, such metropolitan centers as San 
Francisco, New Orleans, Chicago, Dallas, 
Detroit, and others, boast one or more in- 
town motels, some of them in downtown 
areas. 

And they are showing no timidity, nor 
sparing any expense, in their move town- 
ward. In Chicago, an elaborate motel-res- 
taurant-swimming pool is plopping itself 
down on the shores of Lake Michigan el- 
bow-to-elbow with the famed Edgewater 
Beach Hotel. In Los Angeles, a new motel 
will venture within three blocks of the 
Statler Hotel. 

San Francisco's fashionable Nob Hill it- 
self will be scaled by a l4-story steel and 
glass slab motel-hotel, a blend brought 
about to accommodate the car as well as the 



car traveler. Multiple-story construction is 
fairly common for close-in motels, because 
of high land cost and limited-size building 
lots. 

Top motel state is California, which has 
over 7,500 of the nation's more than 50,- 
000 motels. Leading in-town-motel expo- 
nent is San Francisco, where five new ones 
were opened last summer. The number of 
permits for new motels in that cit)' reflect 
the trek into town: Two in 1950, two more 
in 1951, one in 1952, three in 1953, and 
20 in 1954. 

With downtown motels on the increase, 
and hotels, too, rolling out the asphalt car- 
pet, the traveling motorist is more and more 
assured of a convenient place to rest his 
weary head and park the family bus.

NAVY IS CONCERNED 

The Na\y has inaugurated a sweeping 
program designed to reduce traffic acci- 
dents among its off-duty military person- 
nel. 

In a letter to all ships and stations, Vice 
Admiral J. L. Holloway, Jr., Chief of 
Naval Personnel, outlined the program 
which is directed toward the prevention of 
accidents involving privately - owned ve- 
hicles of Na\-y and Marine Corps men and 
women. 

"In view of the large number of acci- 
dents sustained by military personnel, re- 
suiting in loss of life, injuries, property 
damage, and loss of man hours," Admiral 
Holloway said, "the Secretary of the Navy 
has directed the establishment of a motor 
vehicle accident prevention program and 
has assigned the joint resptinsibility for the 
formulation of such a program to the 
Commandant of the Marine Corps and the 
Chief of Naval Personnel. To insure uni- 
formity, the Commandant of the Marine 
Corps and the Chief of Naval Personnel 
have established a joint committee to pro- 
vide coordination of the implementation 
and operation of the Department of the 
Navy Traffic Safety Program." 

To make Na\y and Marine Corps per- 
sonnel more traffic safety conscious, partic- 
ularly while driving their own vehicles off- 
duty, the program embraces training, pub- 
licity, and enforcement activities.

BROTHERS v$. BANDITS 



Luman and Silas Gaskill pitched their 
camp on a level place by a rolling stream 
in the lower Milquatay Valley in San 
Diego County back in 1868 and liked the 
place so much that they decided to stay. 

In almost no time at all the two broth- 
ers had started a hotel, a general merchan- 
dising store, flour mill, and blacksmith 
shop, and were serving as a trading center 
for some 600 neighbors. As co-founders 
of the new flourishing town of Campo, 
they had made a place for themselves in 
the history of the area, but it was as two 
of the principal actors in the drama of a 
now famous bandit raid that they were to 
make that place secure. 

In relating the story, the National Auto- 
mobile Club tells how on a bleak Decem- 
ber day in 1875 Luman Gaskill was stand- 
ing alone behind the counter of his store 
when Cruz Lopez and two of his hench- 
men rode up, strode into the store, and 
threatened to shoot him. Not being the 
kind of man to give up without a struggle, 
Luman gave out with a whooping cry of 
"Murder! " and lunged for his gun that 
was standing in the corner. 

Before he could reach it, however, two 
of the bandits grabbed him and held him 
while Lopez fired a shot into him at point- 
blank range. Leaving Luman for dead, the 
three bandits then ran outside the store 
where three of their companions had been 
standing guard over Silas. 

Luman's cry of "Murder," however, 
had already sent Silas into action. He, too, 
had lunged for his gun and had wheeled, 
killed one of his captors, wounded an- 
other, and then taken to cover to continue 
the fight. In the meantime his brother had

dragged himself to the creek, staunched 
his wounds, and crawled back to the scene 
to join the battle. Before too much time 
had passed, two bandits had been killed, 
two captured and immediately hanged to a 
nearby tree, and one so seriously wounded 
that he died in a nearby valley. Luman 
recovered from his wounds and died al- 
most forty years later in 1914. His brother 
died the same year.

CHIEFS TO MEET 

The 63rd annual conference of the In- 
ternational Association of Chiefs of Police 
will be conducted September 9-1.3, 19'i6, 
in Chicago, according to Walter E. Head- 
ley, Jr., president of the lACP. 

Headley, who is chief of police of 
Miami, Florida, said that the Conrad Hil- 
ton Hotel will be conference headquarters. 
Chief George A. Otlewis of the Chicago 
Park District Police Department and Com- 
missioner Timothy J. O Connor of the 
Chicago Police Department will be co- 
hosts to the conference. 

SUN DRIVES AUTO 

Harnessing the sun's boundless energ)' 
has baffled scientists for centuries. Auto- 
motive research, according to the National 
Automobile Club, recently came up with 
its own formula: a sun-powered model 
automobile. 

Twelve photoelectric cells, made of the 
element selenium, which has the property 
of converting light into electric power, 
are located on top of the fifteen-inch car. 
Electric current from the selenium cells 
operates a tiny motor that propels the 
vehicle. 

Automotive officials emphasize that the 
"sunmobile ' is not now planned as a fore- 
runner of a full-size solar-powered auto- 
mobile. Today's photoelectric cells cannot 
produce sufficient horsepower. 

The sun - powered model is offered 
merely to illustrate the possibilit)' of using 
the sun as a direct power source.

HOW ABOUT NIGHT DRIVING? 



How fast are your vision reflexes at 
night? 

. Try standing in a dark closet until your 
eyes are accustomed to the darkness. Then 
look straight at the light while you turn it 
on suddenly. How many objects can you 
see clearly in the first ten seconds after the 
light comes on L 

That, according to the National Auto- 
mobile Club, is no mere academic experi- 
ment. It's the kind of thing that happens 
to you when you drive at night. Bright 
headlights in your eyes have the same ef- 
fect as the light in the closet. And ten sec- 
onds is more than enough time for a fatal 
accident. 

Maybe you have perfect night vision, 
but if your faulty lights blind the driver 
you're meeting the chances are that he'll hit 
you. It is, therefore, a wise idea to make

sure that your headlights are right by hav- 
ing experts check your whole electrical sys- 
tem. 

That kind of care will pay off in other 
ways, too. Remember, for instance, the last 
time you overtook a dark-clothed pedes- 
trian walking on the wrong side of the 
road at night ? Did you see him in time, or 
did your lights pick him up after he was 
so close that you couldn't have stopped in 
time if he had stepped into your path? 
Think that one over and be honest in your 
answer. 

That is what is known as "overdriving 
your headlights. " One simple remedy for 
this dangerous fault is to drive more slowly

at night than you do in the day. That's a 
good rule to follow no matter what condi- 
tion your lights are in. Another good rule 
is to make a habit of having your head- 
lights checked periodically for focus, 
brightness, beam tilt, and general safe con- 
dition. 

For really safe night driving, be sure 
that all your lights are working right. 
Check signal lights, tail and parking lights, 
and dashboard lights. No amount of good 
night vision is going to save you if you 
just can't see.

ARREST PROMISED 

Persons apprehended scattering trash 
and rubbish along public highways will be 
arrested says the California Highway Patrol 
in emphasizing an enforcement program 
designed to curtail this type of activity in 
California. 

"A law prohibiting the throwing of cans, 
bottles, papers, garbage and other refuse on 
our highways was placed in the California 
Vehicle Code by the 1955 Legislature," 
said Patrol Commissioner B. R. Caldwell. 
"This restriction against litterbugs prohib- 
its the scattering of trash anywhere along 
the right-of-way of a public highway. 

"The Patrol will continue positive en- 
forcement action against violators of this 
law," Caldwell continued. "Our highways 
can be kept clean and beautiful if motorists 
will carry a trash bag or other receptacle 
and keep cans, papers and trash in the car 
until it can be disposed of properly. 

"Everyone should want clean highways, 
so don't rely on enforcement agencies to 
stop littering. 

"Do it yourself. '

THAT WEIRD HOUSE 



When Mrs. Winchester, heir to the vast 
Winchester arms fortune and recipient of a 
personal income of one thousand dollars 
per day, moved from New England to San 
Jose, the seventeen-room house that Doctor 
Caldwell was building just four miles out 
of town seemed like the place to settle. She 
bought the house, together with the thirt)' 
surrounding acres. 

No sooner had Mrs. Winchester settled 
in her new house than she began to hear 
voices from the other world, voices that 
told her she must always have the sound of 
hammers around her home, must continue 
to build, or she would die. 

Sitting alone in her one-windowed 
"spirit room" and listening to her voices, 
she hired carpenters and set them to work 
following her every whim, recounts the 
National Automobile Club. Under her di- 
rection they built stairways that had every 
kind of tread and led into rooms, into blank 
walls, or just stopped abruptly in space. 
They built corridors that varied in width 
from two feet to six or eight feet, and ceil- 
ings that made you crouch or peer upward. 
Some 2,000 doors built at every angle broke 
up the endless walls and some 10,000 win- 
dows, many of them of surpassing beauty.

seemed to be everywhere. Doors or win- 
dows could open on a corridor, a view, a 
blank brick wall, or a closet so shallow that 
nothing could be stored there. 

But all was not idle whim and ugliness. 
The entrance hall or "Prism Hall" was a 
place of lavish and breathtaking beauty. 
The ballroom, in which no one ever 
danced, was magnificently finished in bird's 
eye maple and had a handlaid floor made of 
hundreds of hardwood blocks. 

When death finally took Mrs. Winches- 
ter, she had kept the hammers pounding 
for 38 years and had spent an estimated 
five million dollars on her spirit inspired 
home. 

OREGON FIRST 

Oregon, in 1919, was the first state 
to put a tax on gasoline, according to the 
National Automobile Club. All states had 
a tax on gasoline by 1929. 

BRIDGE TRAFFIC 

A grand total of 432,137,395 vehicles

GROWTH OF AUTO 

One September day in 1893, the chug- 
ging and popping of the nations first suc- 
cessful gasoline-powered vehicle violated 
the quiet of the streets in Springfield, Mas- 
sachusetts. Built by Charles and Frank Dur- 
yea, the single-cylinder car was passing its 
first road test. 

It took 38 years to make that car's first 
50 million descendants, according to the 
National Automobile Club. The next 50 
million required 17 years, and there was 
quite a celebration in 1948 when the 100 
millionth American-built motor vehicle 
was turned out. 

In 1955, barely seven years later, the 1 50 
millionth came rolling ofl a United States 
production line. The industry was too busy 
turning out a record 9 million-plus cars, 
trucks, and buses to accord the event any 
fanfare. 

We now drive 50 million cars, 10 mil- 
lion trucks, and a quarter million buses. 
Forecasters say we will have 81 million ve- 
hicles by 1965. Now may be a good time to 
sec what has become of the Duryea's motor 
wagon. 

As used in the United States, the auto- 
motive vehicle is an instrument of mass 
transport unlike anything before it. Our 
foood, clothing, and shelter have felt its 
impact, to say nothing of social customs. 

Tropical fruits grace rural and small- 
town tables the year around, no longer re- 
scr\'cd for Christmas stockings. Sociolo- 
gists liken the automobile to an added room 
for our homes, but architects note the pass- 
ing of the front parlor. A recent survey re- 
veals that this traditional site for courting 
has largely given way to the family car. The 
old-fashioned greatcoat, with the advent of 
closed cars, has gone the way of the buggy 
whip. 

In these and many other ways, unprece- 
dented personal mobility has let us reweavc 
the fabric of our lives.

Speed, violations of the right-of-way

nary figures released recently by the Cali- 
fornia Highway Patrol. 

"The preliminary figures show that over 
half of our fatal and injury accidents were 
caused by one of the three violations," de- 
clared Patrol Commissioner B. R. Cald- 
well. "Following closely behind the deadly 
three were violations involving improper 
turns, driving on the wrong side of the 
road, following too closely and improper 
passing. 

"In an effort to stop accidents, the Pa- 
trol issued citations for 778,014 traffic vio- 
lations during the year," Cold well said.

ence to the traffic rules and regulations is

"Traffic violators will continue to be 
cited when observed but every driver and

violation kill you." 

DUAL EXHAUSTS 

Ever wondered why sometimes only one 
tail pipe smokes on a car equipped with 
dual exhausts? The reason, says the Cali- 
fornia State Automobile Association, is that 
the exhaust control valve diverts the ex- 
haust gases from one bank of cylinders 
across the intake manifold and out the 
other exhaust manifold while the engine is 
warming up. This heats the intake mani- 
fold and provides better carburetion. When 
the engine has warmed up, the valve opens 
and the exhaust gases pass out through 
both tail pipes.

STATE GETS 47 MILLION 

( aliiornia h.is rci.ci\cd an apportionment ol $-i7 million in Federal Aid 
funds tor highways during the fiscal year beginning in 1956. 

Of this amount, $14'/2 million is for the primary highway system, I?"/. 
million for secondary' or feeder roads. Si 5 million for urban highways, and 
almost $10 million for that portion of the Interstate Highway System which 
is in the State. 

The apportionment is the second and last under the provisions of the 
Federal Aid Highway Act of \9'>-i. The act authorized $1,750,000,000 in 
grants to the states and other federal highway projects for the two fiscal years 
bc-ginning July 1, I')'''' and 19'>6. 



600 MILLION EGGS 

Petaluma is said to be the world's most 
concentrated cfig production center and 
produces 600 million eggs per year, re- 
ports the California State Automobile As- 
scKiation. 

RUSSIA'S CARS 

There- arc approximately 225,000 auto- 
mobiles in use in Russia, reports the Cali- 
fornia State Automobile Association. 

Driving at highway speeds, the average 
automobile engine fires over 16,000 times 
each minute. If this ignition in the cylin- 
ders does- not occur at precisely the right 
instant, your car is wasting both gasoline 
and power. For maximum efficiency and 
driving pleasure, the California State

DO YOU LIKE FREEWAYS? 



Page 59 



"The trouble with freeways in Los 

Angeles," wrote L. L. Wise, Associate 

'< Editor of Engineerhig News-Record, in a 

I recent issue of that publication, "is that too 

I many people use them. 

I This statement, often seemingly made 

j in jest, is actually a relatively good analysis 

, of the current stage of development of the 

system of super^highways that crisscrosses 

downtown Los Angeles and extends out to 

' suburban areas. 

Aerial photographs and traffic counts 
' bear out Wise's statement. They show 
graphically how the vehicle-operating pub- 
lic has gravitated away from the main bou- 
I levards and onto the freeways. 
j The photographs bring to life the im- 
I pressive statistics which have often been 
' cited to substantiate the claim that the Hol- 
lywood Freeway is the most heavily trav- 
eled traffic artery in the world and the four- 
level interchange structure at the junction 
of the Holllywood-Santa Ana, Harbor, and 
Pasadena Freeways is the most heavily tra- 
ded intersection in the world. 

Through the four-level interchange 
1 there pass, in a 24-hour period, well over 
' a quarter of a million vehicles. One esti- 
mate has placed the daily traffic there on a 
heavy day at 281,500. 

The Hollywood Freeway west of the 

four-level structure carries up to 180,000 

vehicles a day on busy days. At certain 

peak hours, the traffic flow is in the vicinity 

I of 8,000 vehicles per hour for four lanes in 

j one direction.

Studies have shown that freeways draw 
traffic from parallel routes as much as two 
miles away. Why? Because people have 
discovered that freeways do the job they 
were designed to do: carry more traffic 
more safely and with less delay than the 
surface streets with their intersections at 
grade, their signals, and their unrestricted 
access from adjoining property. 

Paradoxically, this lure of the freeways 
has at times reduced traffic on once-con- 
gested parallel arteries to a mere trickle. It 
is the freeway that appears congested. Yet 
motorists prefer the crowded freeway to 
the lightly traveled city street. 

As it was summarized by Lloyd Aldrich, 
former city engineer of Los Angeles, in a 
recent study : 

"Three times as much traffic can move 
on a freeway as on a parallel boulevard in

The State Highway Budget for the 1956- 
57 Fiscal Year contains approximately 
$73,000,000 for rights of way and con- 
struction on the metropolitan freeway sys-

In the foreseeable future, depending on 
the rate of financing, motorists will have 
their choice of a number of freeways pass-

This integrated network of freeways will

UNIFORM LAW? 

A national organization of state govern- 
ment ofiicials today disclosed it has urged 
governors and other officials of each state 
to adopt a uniform law to combat litter 
along highways and other public areas. 

In its suggested state legislative program 
for 1956, the Council of State Govern- 
ments called attention to "an almost com- 
plete lack of uniformit) ' in present anti- 
litter laws. 

Cited as examples of variances in litter 
statutes were definitions of litter itself, 
area where trash dumping is banned, who 
should enforce litter laws and the penalty 
on violators. 

The councils drafting committee has 
forwarded to state bill-drafting units sug- 
gested legislation, including seven major 
points to guide states in revising or aug- 
menting their litter prevention laws. This 
tommittcc is made up of state officials. 

Its recommendations were based on re- 
search provided by Keep America Beauti- 
ful, Inc., New York City, a non-profit pub- 
lic service organization for the prevention 
of litter. 

The recommended statute calls for an 
all-inclusive definition of litter. Many 
states currently prohibit tossing of only 
specific items, among them being tin cans, 
nails, and bottles. 

Only California and Indiana charge all 
local and state police with enforcing litter 
laws. The Council of State Governments 
believes all states should adopt this policy. 
The statute should be state-wide in ap- 
plication, not merely an enabling act 
authorizing political subdivisions to adopt 
anti-litter ordinances," the committee de- 
clared. 

It suggested limiting the state laws to 
litter deposited on public property, such 
.IS right-of-way limits on a highway, and 
on parks, beaches and other public facili- 
ties. 

The driver of a motor vehicle would be 
responsible for litter thrown from his car 
when there is doubt concerning which (x- 
lupant committed the violation, the pro- 
posed statute states. 

Fines ranging from $10 to $100 were 
recommended by the state officials. Pre- 
sent penalties for littering range from a 
minimum of one dollar in Kentucky lu 
51,000 in Georgia.

The Truth About Lie Detection 

/)) Major Chris Glu.as 
Asusl^iiil Chief of Security, Los Angeles C/ly School Distncls 
Major Gueas who is a member of the Board of Polygraph Examiners. Washington, D. C. has supplied the Police & Peace 
Officers" Iournai with the following highly interesting article. While in the Marine Corps, the Major established the pres- 
ent I ie Detection program for the Criminal Investigation Department of the Marine Corps. Following his military service in 
194<y Mijor Gugas was sent to Greece and Turkey by the United States government as a police Consultant. During the last 
nine 'years he has lectured to thousands of students, lawyers, police officers and the lay public on Lie Detection techniques. 
Here's his article: 

only 70 per cent of this countr)''s popu- 
lation can be tested by a Polygraph. The 
remaining 30 per cent includes the men- 
tally incompetent, small children, senile 
persons and others with certain serious 
illnesses. 



Docs an instrument really exist that will 
tell whether a person is telling the truth 
or not ? This article gives you all the facts 
about such a machine. 

Everyone, undoubtedly, has heard at 
one time or another about the "Lie De- 
tector" and its amazing ability to deter- 
mine whether a person is telling the truth 
or attempting to lie about a given situa- 
tion. Yet, very few of the same individu- 
als know what the instrument can actually 
do when used in civil, criminal, or per- 
sonnel situations. 

Actually, this ""machine""cannot call you 
a liar, thief, murder or anything else — 
there is no such device in existence! The 
instrument labeled a "Lie Detector," but 
which is properly named a "Polygraph," 
will record blood-pressure and pulse vari- 
ations, respiratfon and skin resistance 
changes only — and nothing more. 

Why then do people get the idea that 
this instrument can tell if a person is ly- 
ing.' The answer is in the amost inevitable 
confession resulting from a thorough anal- 
ysis by the Polygraph Operator of the 
charts produced by an interrogation of a 
guilty subject. These charts will show cer- 
tain physiological changes within the sub- 
jects body which indicate an emotional 
disturbance is present when certain ques- 
tions are asked. 

Up To Examiners 
The examiner, who is highly trained 
in reading and interpreting these charts, 
as well as in constructing the questions 
asked the subject, can only assume that 
the person is lying when such emotional 
disturbances continue to appear on the 
charts throughout the examination. 

Therefore, it is the examiner — rather 
than the instrument — who should rightly 
be called the "Lie Detector. ' He must 
determine if abnormal responses, caused 
by certain questions, are of a deceptive 
answer or because the subject is nervous 
and upset. 

Many Unfit 

Many persons are not true subjects for 

Polygraph examinations because of serious 

mental deficiencies, physical ailments or 

extreme ner>ou$ncss. Estimates show that 



However, a competent examiner can 
successfully test persons who suffer from 
high or low blood-pressure and others 
with physical ailments which do not af- 
fect the nervous system. 

In fact, this author has conducted tests 
on persons totally deaf and dumb or who 
refused to answer any questions. In such 
situations, pictures or written questions 
were shown the subject and it was often 
possible to determine truth deception, 

Murder Suspect 

One such incident involved a murder 
suspect accused of killing his wife and 
hiding the btidy. His attorney consented 
to a Polygraph examination but cautioned 
us that his client would not answer one 
question — not even with a "yes '" or '"no." 

Investigation of circumstances resulted 
in a theory that the suspect had probably 
hidden the body near his home. 

Police authorities were requested to ob- 
tain photographs of the entire area and 
submit them to us so we could conduct 
the examination. When the suspect was 
attached to the instrument and shown the 
various pictures, he reacted violently to 
one particular area. As a result, the po- 
lice were able to concentrate their efforts 
to this one area, and they recovered the

well hidden body of the suspect's wife 
in a matter of hours. 

A confession was later obtained from 
the husband and he was quickly tried and 
convicted. This method of testing has been 
used successfully in several other similar 
cases by other examiners. 

Test For Truth 

Many preliminary preparations must be 
made to insure a proper examination in 
order for the Polygraph examiner to de- 
termine if his subject is telling the truth. 
He must have detailed information avail- 
able in order that he may use such ma- 
terial in the preparations of questions to 
be asked the subject. Each subject must 
be questioned in a manner that will pro- 
duce an atmosphere of utmost confidence 
in the examiner and the instrument. 
Otherwise an extremely nervous person, 
for instance, will not make a suitable 
subject for an examination. Establishing 
this rapport — or sympathic relations — is 
the examiner's most important challenge 
before actually conducting the examina- 
tion. 

The author remembers a situation in 
Europe when a person was accused by the 
police of committing a murder, a charge 
he vehemently denied for several days. 
The examiner first asked, "Have you ever 
taken $100 . . . $500 ... $1500 .. . $200 
. . . etc.'" Each question was repeated 
several times, delivered at regular inter- 
vals with no voice inflection by the ex- 
aminer. 

Key Words 

The next set of questions had "brooch" 
tucked away in a list of several other ob- 
jects ("Purse . . . knife . . . ring . . . etc") 
which had no connection with the crime. 
The third set of questions included "Gold

coin"; a fourth, "$5.00, " included in a 
list with $10 ... $15 ... $20 .. . etc. 
Each innocent subject answering these 
questions did not record an abnormal 
response to the "Key" or "hidden" ques- 
tion, since $1500 meant no more-or-less- 
than $10 or $10,000, while a '"brooch" 
was no more significant than a ring. 

But the Polygraph record of the guilt)' 
person rose steadily through each series 
of questions until the "key" word or figure 
was reached. Following this peak, the re- 
action dropped towards the normal tracing 
at the bottom of the recording chart. 

This type of examination is practically 
fool-proof — if all other methods fail to

produce a confession from the guilty par- 
ty. The only drawback to this particular 
method is that often much of the impor- 
tant information has already been made 
available to everyone in the firm. 

Ever)- effort should be made to keep 
the actual loss and type of objects taken 
a secret until asked by the Polygraph ex- 
aminer. This type of examination has 
been successful in locating thousands of 
dollars in cash, jewelry and valuables 
when a Polygraph examiner has been 
utilized early in the case. 

Hardest Test 

The second type of examination is 
tailed the relevant-irrelevant method. This 
examination is most dillicult and must 
be used only when there are no Peak 
of Tension " type questions available. This 
test is not absolutely reliable, but a com- 
petent examiner can make a correct anal- 
ysis if the test is conducted under proper 
conditions and the subject is suitable for 
testing. 

The relevant-irrelevant technique util- 
izers a series of questions in which the 
M^nifuant or pertinent items are woven 
Into the sequence. For example, two or 
three routine questions are first asked on 
such subjects as name, race, age, and 
other common qucric*s. These are followed 
by questions pertaining to the crime or 
situations. Then another insignificant set 
of questions is asked again followed by 
one or more relevant or pertinent ques- 
tions. 

The main purpose in asking the irrele- 
vant questions is to release the subjects 
tension so that the reaction cune, which 
may result on an important or relevant 
question, may return to the basic or nor- 
mal level on the recording chart. In these 
cases, the irrelevant questions are referred 
to as "releases." 

Tension Peak 

This latter type of examination is used 
extensively by Polygraph examiners be- 
cause sufficient information is not avail- 
able at the time of the test to conduct 
the more reliable "Peak of Tension" test.

It is strongly emphasized that all police 
and business executives be properly train- 
ed in withholding all pertinent informa- 
tion from suspects and employees until 
the Polygraph examiner conducts his tests. 
In this way, it is practically certain that 
the guilty person, if available for testing, 
will be uncovered quickly. 

Many banks and industrial concerns 
throughout the country now screen their 
personnel before hiring them. The Poly- 
graph is an excellent instrument to ferret 
out persons with undesirable backgrounds 
who might otherwise have been hired. 

One bank in Los Angeles requested 
that three employees be tested by this 
author to learn which one would make 
the best officer in a new branch office to 
be opened in a nearby city. It was deter- 
mined that one of the three was living 
beyond his means and had deposited sev- 
eral hundreds of dollars in banks away 
from Los Angeles. He confessed to being 
a "bookmaker" on the side in order to 
supplement his bank salary. The second 
subject was found to be suffering from a 
persecution complex and would not have 
made a desirable officer because of his 
mental attitude. The third employee was 
recommended for the position and has 
since become one of the finest officers in 
his organization! 

The instrument and the examiner are 
not infallible. The machine may develop 
mechanical or electrical failure during an 
examination. The competent examiner, 
however, can recognize any mechanical 
defect and usually correct the failure 
quickly and resume the test. 

Evidence Allowed 

The results of a Polygraph examina- 
tion can be introduced in a court of law 
only by an agreement between both parties 
involved. The Polygraph technique has 
been used extensively in civil suits, parti- 
cularly those involving paternity claims. 
Usually the court will ask both parties 
to submit to the Polygraph test in order 
to learn which party is telling the truth. 
If both agree to the test, then the re-

suits of the examination are admitted into 
evidence as expert testimony. The opinion 
of the examiner may be accepted by the 
court or it may be disregarded. 

Civil actions re^ardin^ business trans- 
actions between partners, automobile ac- 
cidents, and many other types of civil 
actions have been solved cither by con- 
fession as a result of the Polygraph test 
or by the court ruling solely upon the 
examiners opinion. In many instances, 
the Polygraph Examiner s report is ac- 
cepted prior to the trial with one member 
of the action settling in favor of the other, 
thereby saving the taxpayers the expense 
of lengthy court trial. 

Why Isn't thf Polvgraph Ushd 
More.' 

The answer to the above question is 
lack of proper public understanding. In- 
dignation meetings held by two women's 
clubs protc-stcd the chain store tests re- 
ferred to elsewhere in this article, and a 
state representative oflFcred a resolution 
condemning the "Lie Detector' as un- 
American ! One famous Polygraph expert 
drily remarked that the cash register with 
rctording tape was also taken as an in- 
sult by indi/jnanf employees when it was 
first introduced several years aj^o. 

When conducted by an expert exam- 
iner, the Polygraph test in business or 
industry is more like a personnel inter- 
view. No attempt is made to intimidate 
or frighten the subject and the author 
has never known of any subject complain- 
ing because of the interview or the ques- 
tions asked during the examination. 

CLOSE FOLLOWING 

Rear-end collisions are one of the most 
common traffic accidents and yet they're so 
easy to avoid. All you have to do is allow 
enough room between your car and the 
vchiile ahead, says the California State 
Automobile Association. What's "enough 
room.' " One car length for each ten miles 
per hour of your speed is a fairly safe 
margin at spc-cds up to fifty. Above that 
allow a little more.

SMART POLICE WORK 

How police alertness and a solitary and partial finger impression, accentuated by 
jeweler's wax, and found on policeman's revolver, solved the murder of a New 
York Patrolman, is recounted in Finger Print Magazine and reproduced herein. 

The case proves that even the smallest bit of evidence should never be overlooked 
in the investigation of a crime and is a classic for study by every police department 
in the country. Here's the thrilling and interesting story: 

On September 23, 1957, Patrolman While detectives began piecing togetlu 

John H. Wilson was patrolling Fulton the route by which the slayers had left ttu 
Street, New "^'ork City, when he saw a vicinity of the crime, scientific experts 
crowd gathering near the corner of Fulton 
and Gold Streets. Lcwking up, he saw a 
man gc-sturing and shouting, "Help! Po- 
lite! Holdup!" 

The patrolman immediately went into 
aition. Out came his service revolver as he 
hurried thrt)ugh the doorway of No. 6'>. 
Up the stairs he charged, gun in hand. At 
the entrance to a workshop stood a man in 
a grey topcoat and hat who beckoned him 
to enter. 

The officer hurried to the workroom, 
and iis he passed through the doorway the 
waiting man brought the butt of a revolv- 
er down on the policeman s skull. 

There the poliicman made his last stand 
as two human wolves encircled him. The 
taller of the two began shooting at the 
officer from behind, and his companion 
followed suit. One of the bullets entered 
the policeman's skull. Other slugs struck 
him in the abdomen, temple, heart and 
right side. 

Patrolman Wilson fired only once, the 
shot tearing into the ceiling, then the gun 
slipped through his fingers. 

As the patrolman fell, the gunman who 
h.id been firing from behind a work bench 
on which a caldron of wax still simmered, 
thrust his left hand over the bench to seize 
the officer's revolver. The hurried, awk- 
ward movement upset the pot and its siz- 
zling contents flew about. The bandit 
grasped the weapon, then speedily dropped 

The killers sped down the stairs and out 
onto Fulton Street, leaving behind a fatal- 
ly wounded policeman, the officers' gun 
.iiul an i>\crturncd kettle of wax. 



the New York Police Department were 
busy at work. A police fingerprint expert 
hurried to 6^ Fulton Street. 

"Anybody touch these?" he asked 
pointing to the policeman's firearm and 
some other objects in the room. 

"No," was the reply. 

"Swell," commented the expert, \\h 
then picked up the patrolmans ser\ i 
revolver, and his eyes widened with ple.i 
ure. There across the barrel was a fairh 
dear fingerprint. 

He looked curiously at Wilsons gim 
and saw why the print was so distin, 
There had been something sticky on tl 
gun. He glanced around and noticed tlu 
overturned cauldron and the pieces ot 
congealed substance on the floor. 

"What s that stuff? " he inquired. 
"Just our wax, ' answered one of the 
employees who had witnessed the tragu

murder. "It was tipped over in the shoot- 
ing." 

The expert began picking up every bit 
of the now hardened substance he could 
find unaware yet of the importance of his 
discovery, he returned to police head- 
quarters and handed the wax to a police 
chemist. 

Melting Point 

It was nighttime now. Patrolman Wil- 
son had died a few hours earlier. The 
chemist was performing a routine test on 
the wax to determine its composition. He 
heated slowly and made several other tests. 
In an hour he was able to report, "It's a 
common jeweler's wax made up of car- 
nauba wax, beeswax and Bergundy pitch. 
Its melting point is 77.5 degrees centi- 
grade. " 

That's pretty hot," the finger print 
expert said. "How hot is that in ordinary 
fahrenheit temperature?" 

The chemist made a quick calculation 
and replied, "Just about 158 degrees." 

The finger print technician stared; an 
idea was playing in his mind. He would 
make some tests. 

He took the wax and warmed it slowly 
until it began simmering and sputtering. 
He then spilled it on a metal plate. He 
took out his watch and counted fifty sec- 
onds. Then he placed his finger on the plate 
for a moment and took it away. He looked 



for a molded finger print, but there was 
none. Evidently the wax had become too 
hard in fifty seconds. 

Prints Checked 

After making several tests, it was found 
that a finger impression could be made in 
the wax in about thirty seconds or less. 
But at fifteen seconds, although a print was 
left, the plate was so hot that the finger 
was burned. 

At that stage of the investigation, the 
print on the gun was turned over to an- 
other expert for a search through the crim- 
inal finger print records of the New York 
City Police. 

After the prints of thousands of possible 
suspects had been checked against the wax 
gun impression, detectives from the homi- 
cide squad went into the bureau of identifi- 
cation one Sunday afternoon in early Octo- 
ber with the names of two men, Charles 
Sberna and Salvatore Gatti, whom they 
thought might be connected with Patrol- 
man Wilson's murder. 

The detectives watched as Salvatore 
Gatti's inked finger prints were placed 
along side the one left in wax on the po- 
liceman's revolver. Slowly the technician 
carefully compared each inked print with 
the latent impression, and after twenty 
minutes he was able to announce that the 
print on the gun was that of one-third of 
Gatti's left index finger. In addition to 
eighteen matching ridge characteristics, 
both prints even bore the same thin scar. 
Matching Points 

Discussing that finger print later with 
District Attorney Jacob Rosenblum, the 
technician told him: 

"Usually six similarities in finger prints 
are considered sound proof of identity. 
Here we found no less than nineteen sim- 
ilarities on that one-third of a finger print." 

After the identification of the wax 
print on the gun, eye-witnesses to the slay- 
ing were brought into headquarters. With- 
out hesitation, they identified the rogues' 
gallery photograph of Salvatore Gatti as 
the man who had reached for Officer Wil- 
son's gun and over-turned the wax. Every-

thing seemed to point to Gatti as the ban- 
dit who fired two bullets into the cornered 
policeman. 

Now something else turned up. The de- 
tectives noticed that every time Gatti had 
been arrested, a pal, Charles Sberna, had 
also been involved. They had been in an 
assault case together, had gone to Sing 
Sing together, and had been paroled the 
same day. A quick glance at Sberna's pic- 
ture in the rogue's gallery showed him to 
be the other of Patrolman Wilson's killers. 

It was discovered that these two ex-con- 
victs were scheduled to report to the parole

hoard on Tuesday, October 5. Detectives 
were assigned to be waiting for them at 
the parole office, and on Tuesday after- 
noon when the parolees reported in, they 
were promptly picked up. Gatti had a 
bandage on his left arm and hand. 

"Where did you get that burn?' de- 
manded the detectives. 

Oh, that.'" Gatti shuffled, then grin- 
ned. "Why, I got it making some fudge." 

The case against Gatti and Sberna, in- 
dicted for first degree murder, went to 
trial in General Sessions Court in June, 
1938, before Judge James Wallace and a 
blue ribbon jur)'. The prosecution learned 
that Gatti's counsel was Samuel Lcibowitz, 
a lawyer who had successfully defended 
many professional criminals, and who since 
then has earned a splendid reputation as a 
judge. He was the picture of confidence 
in the court-room as he gave his usual ora- 
torical appeal to the jury in the trial of 
Gatti and Sberna. 

Acting for the prosecution was Assist- 
ant District Attorney Jacob J. Rosenblum 
who, when the anti-crime crusader District 
Attorney Thomas Dewey came into of- 
fice, had been put in charge of all homicide 
prosecutions. Mr. Rosenblum had a record 
of which any lawyer would well be proud. 
From 1931 to 193^, as an assistant under 
the United States Attorney in New York, 
he had never lost a case. And under Mr. 
Dewey he had, in nine months, sent nine 
killers to the electric chair. 

The finger print testimony and Mr. 
Rosenblums jxjwerful attack proved so 
effective that Leibowitz changed his cus- 
tomary strategy. Gatti was put on the wit- 
ness stand in a surprise move to lessen the 
damage against himself, and if possible, 
to exonerate Sberna. Gatti even admitted 
being in the workshop on the morning of 
the crime — but not to rob. He also admit- 
ted that he had been burned by the wax 
and testified that there was some shooting 
when Patrolman Wilson arrived, but that 
he didn't shoot. 

There was tension in the court room 
after Judge Wallace sent the jury to delib- 
erate its verdict. Lcibowitz and Rosenblum, 
each with his staff, waited anxiously. The 
argument lasted seventeen hours. Then the 
jury filed back. 

The verdict was guilty of murder in the 
first degrc-e for both defendants. There 
was no recommendation of mercy for 
either one. One week later. Judge Wallace 
sentenced the two killers to die in the elec- 
tric chair at Sing Sing. 

On January '>, 1939, Gatti and Sberna 
paid with their lives for the needless, wan- 
ton slaying of Patrolmen John H. Wilson 
-thanks to that molded, fragmentary fin- 
ger impression on the dead officers revolv- 
er barrel.

TRAGEDY LIES AHEAD 



So you think things are messed up out 
there on the highway ? Weil, just wait an- 
other ten years ! 

The National Safety Council has taken 
a peep into the future and come up with 
these disconcerting figures: 

By 1956, an endless swarm of 82,000,- 
000 motor vehicles will jam the streets and 
highways — 20,000,000 more than are on 
the road now; 

They will be piloted at various times by 
90,000,000 drivers. 

They will travel approximately 825 bil- 
lion miles a year. 

The traffic toll that year will be around 
53,000 — unless some genius manages to 
pull down the prevailing death rate by get- 
ting to those 90,000,000 drivers with a 
safety sales talk that is more convincing 
than anything thought up so far. 
Safety Program 

Faced with this foreboding future, the 
Council has announced a specific traffic 
safety program designed not only to hold 
down the traffic toll, but to expedite the 
flow of traffic. Safety authorities agree the 
two problems are inseparably interwoven. 

The Council emphasized that while it 
accepts its responsibility, it cannot do the 
job alone, and that the help of every person 
who drives, rides or walks is essential. 

Here is the Council's plan for cutting the 
toll and congestion of future traffic — based 
on proved techniques of engineering and 
enforcement: 

Safe Highways 

1. Convince the public that the only 
real answer to the traffic problem is for 
every individual not only to drive and walk 
sensibly and safely himself, but to join ac- 
tively in an organized community and na- 
tional effort to see that others do the same. 
If this means rougher, tougher traffic en- 
forcement — as it will in many places — de- 
mand, support, and accept it ! 

2. Give every community the facts on 



DEATH STALKS MOTORIST 



.(AN EDITORIAL). 



In 1955, more than fifteen thousand in- 
dividuals didn't return home after the 
pleasures of the weekend. According to fig- 
ures recently published by the Safety Serv- 
ice of The Travelers Insurance Companies 
of Hartford, Connecticut, 15,370 Ameri- 
cans were killed in weekend traffic acci- 
dents. 

Of last year's traffic fatalities, more than 
one-fifth occurred on Saturday. 

The reasons for this record number of 
weekend highway fatalities lie in the mo- 
toring habits of the American public. Every 
highway in the nation has its Saturday 
share of that portion of America bound 
and determined to arrive at its weekend 
destination in time for dinner, even if the 
trip's last sixty miles must be covered in an 
hour flat. Too frequently, the strain and 
fatigue of distance driving are ignored in 
anticipation of ample relaxation at the 
journey's end. 

Then, too, our highways continue to be 
filled with those drivers whose idea of re- 



laxation is an extra drink or two "for the 
road." 

Millions of dollars have been spent by 
Federal, state and municipal authorities in 
an effort to provide better and safer roads. 
Additional millions are spent by insurance 
companies and other private organizations 
for programs of safety education. 

Nevertheless, the weekends of 1955 saw 
more persons killed and injured on our 
highways than ever before. It wasn't the 
fault of the road systems; it wasn't the fault 
of safety education campaigns. It was the 
fault of pleasure-bent individuals striving 
to go too far, too fast, for a weekend's en- 
joyment. 

How to reduce this record total of killed 
and injured ? What is desperately required 
is the immediate, unceasing cooperation of 
every American in possession of a driver's 
permit. 

An aroused awareness of the weekend 
highway peril, plus continued realization 
of this danger is the only way to reduce 
the weekend fatality figures for 1956. 



how its traffic safety program stacks up 
against recognized standards — and help it 
bring itself up to or above par. The Council 
provides the way to do this through its An- 
nual Inventory of Traffic Safety Activities, 
now being used by 46 states and by 1,140 
cities. 

3. Build as many miles of safe, modern 
accident-resistant highways as possible — 
and as fast as possible. The way they are 
financed, says the Council, isn't half as im- 
portant as the fact that unless they're built, 
this conutry will have outsmarted itself 
trafficwise. 

4. Along with building new and better 



and safer roads, use every modern tech- 
nique of traffic engineering and law en- 
forcement to make existing highways as 
foolproof and safe as possible. 

5. Cut through red tape, apathy and leg- 
islative inertia to obtain uniform vehicle 
laws and do what common sense tells the 
nation it should have done long ago — give 
the driver a set of simple, understandable 
traffic rules and laws that he can follow 
from coast to coast — and that he can be sure 
will be enforced. 

6. Make driver education — in class and

SENTINELS OF SAFETY 



Page 3 ^ 



A close alliance between the Police De- 
partment and the San Francisco Schools 
has existed for nearly a third of a centur)' in 
the common interest of traffic safety. It is 
evidenced every day of the school year by 
the activities of the San Francisco School 
Safety Patrol, whose members are trained 
for their duties by a special detail from the 
Department. 

Today, these youthful sentinels of safety 
I stand guard at 600 crossings near 132 
schools in the city, protecting their fellow 
j pupils from traffic hazards. 
! Their effectiveness has been demon- 
I strated over the years by an outstanding 
! safety record, which has been maintained 
despite the constantly increasing volume of 
traffic and number of accidents. Not one 
; child has been killed in traffic at a Patrol- 
I guarded crossing since the Patrols were or- 
ganized in 1923. 

Patrol Honored 

Once a year it is customary to recognize 

the San Francisco School Safety Patrol's 

efforts and accomplishments with a parade 

and review to which the public is invited. 

This year's celebration took place on 

j May 31 when 4,500 boys and girls passed

THE BRASS WAS THERE to applaud the youngsters of the 
School Patrols. At top is Mayor George Christopher and Porter 
Sesnon, vice chairman of the Public Safety Committee of the Cali- 
fornia State Auto Assn. reviewing the parade. Below San Fran- 
cisco Chief of Police Francis J. Ahern (center) is shown with the 



detail that trains the School Safety Patrols. On the Chief's right is

in review at Kezar Stadium before a cheer- 
ing crowd of 8,000 parents, teachers and 
friends of the Patrol. 

In their white Sam Browne belts and 
jaunt)- overseas caps, stepping along smart- 
ly to the music, they presented a colorful 
sight. Honoring them in the reviewing 
stand were city officials, civic leaders and 
representatives of the Police and School 
Departments, Parent-Teacher groups and 



the California State Automobile Associa- 
tion, sponsors of the Patrols. 

Porter Sesnon, vice president of the 
CSAA Public Safety Committee, who was 
chairman of the day, expressed the senti- 
ments of those present when he said; 

"We are here today to again salute the 
San Francisco School Safety Patrols. 
Can Take Pride 

"I like to feel that we are not only honor- 



ing the boys and girls who are on the field 
today, but also paying tribute to some 80,- 
000 others who, during the past 33 years, 
have also sened as members of the San 
Francisco Safety Patrol. Through the years 
our patrols have profited — for by recogniz- 
ing and accepting the responsibility of 
others, members receive valuable training 
as future citizens of our community. These

GOSSIP OF THE PISTOL RANGES 



The sc-tond annual 2700 A^^rc^atc 
matches were held on the Oakland Range 
uver the June 2nd and 3rd week-end with 
a goodly crowd on hand for the Saturday 
matches. Saturday was the A') blunderbuss 
day so there were about 160 lads on the 
Imes (and a louplc of lassies, too) with 
sailorman Tom Elton taking most of the 
niatches and the . l"i aggregate prize. 

And wot a hot day. phew, and I don t 
mean maybe. The gun barrels just dri.H)|u J 
m the heat and the boys were having trmi 
ble with |->erspiration trickling down trom 
their brows mto their eyes. Well, that s 
wot the man said and I believe him — every 
word of it I 

Sunday was just the opposite with a cold 
w ind blowing and not a ray of sunshine in 
the heavens, but still the mob was on hand 
to the tune of around 22") shooters. But 
I tan t figure why the control tower had 
that umbrella up all day long unless he 
figured it was gonna rain or snow. As a 
sun shade it was about as useful as a book 
on "How to Stampede a Herd of Buffalo." 

And who do you thing walked away 
with the two days shooting prize .^ Good 
old, sailorman Tom Elton. (For a Icxik at 
the lad turn to last month's publication 
and there he is on page 11, all smiles at 
the [xissible he is shown with.) It was a 
tuflf two day grind but the boys stuck it 
out pretty well. As for me I folded like 
a camp stool and stole away early before 1 
froze ni) nose off. 

Captain's Victory 

Before I forget, I must tell you readers 
that at the Regional matches at San Diego 
last month Captain Henry Jacobs of the 
California Highway Patrol finally won the 
National Trophy match. It's an easy match 
to win beiause all you have to do is to 
know how to shoot damn well and beat 
every gixjd pistol shot west of the Missis- 
ippi three times in as many years — then 
the trophy is yours. Yep, Cap did just that 
at the regionals and is he proud ? Wouldn't 
you Ix./ But that is not all of the family 
.IS daughter. Gloria Norton, not to be out- 
done, broke the woman's world's record 
in the .22 timed-fire match with a 200 xlO. 
It wasn't so tuff as she only broke her own 
record of long standing which was 200 x 
«>. Gloria holds about all the women's 
records in the books excepting the .A'> 
t.innon.

allowed to attend under a detail. A swell 
bunch of fellows who should be at all the 
matches shooting under the F & G banner 
but they don't see it that way in Sacra- 
mento. Most of the team are there anyhow 
on their days off. Maybe the Sacramento 
brass know nothing about Public Relations 
and all that kind of stuff. 

It was so drippy Sunday the microphone

just wondering if he was trying to buy a

So much for the Regionals. 
Army Ti:am Tests 

The Army teams (four of them) were 
on the lot preparatory to their trip to I'ort 
Benning for the final screening of shooters 
for members of the Olympic team. The 
teams were under the guidance ot coach 
Captain Kalian. And it might be noted 
they will be under the direct supervision 
and final instruction of Colonel Bill Han- 
cock who is well known at the Oakland 
and San Francisco ranges. Note I said 
"colonel. " Bill was given his eagles last 
month. 

The boys from Sacramento were there 
with the exception of Phil Atkinson, their 
coach, but I see now they have an ex- foot- 
ball star on their team, Wes Mitchell, one 
of the "greats " from College of Pacific. 
Phil must be in desperate straits to have a 
team when he starts robbing the gridiron 
for members. Next thing you know, he'll 
be invading the grammar schools for 
material. 

Fish And Gawi: 

Got a big kick out of one of the nrw 
shooters, Jerry Fisher. Like all tyros he 
had to see what m.ikcs a gun tick, or shoot, 
so in the middle of the matihes he took 
his .22 piae apart and the last I saw of 
him he w.is running all over the lot liX)k- 
ing for someone to help him put it to- 
gether again. Sounds like the last lines of 
Humpty-Dumpty.

taken in front of the Casino at Santa Cruz, showing the Pleasure Pier and part of the Boardwalk. A typical 



:ion scene ! 



When vacation time comes, Santa Cruz 
cannot be far away ! 

That very well coulcl be a slogan voiced 
by hundreds of thousands of residents of 
Fresno Valley and the San Francisco Bay 
Area. 

For Santa Cruz, the "County of Con- 
trasts," offers much to the vacationist. 
Surf bathing, deep sea fishing, hunting, 
horseback riding. Giant Redwoods — to 
name but a few diversions for the care- 
free visitor. 

Just a short jaunt by bus or auto from 
the hot valley towns and a mere 74 miles 
south from San Francisco, nature has 
brought together a spectacular combination 
of mountain and seashore attractions af- 
fording recreational opportunities hard to 
surpass in California. 

Situated on world-famous Monterey 
Bay, the 186-year old city of Santa Cruz 



is reached by wide, scenic highways that 
make the drive to the resort a pleasure in 
itself. Blessed with a moderate climate, 
without extremes in temperatures, the 
county assures a wide range of diversions 
every month of the year. 

Trained Police 
Relaxing in comfortable resorts or 
camping under the Sequoias; golfing on 
rolling hills of the Pasatiempo eighteen- 
hole championship course; or dropping a 
line off Fisherman's Wharf in lieu of 
deeper fishing from one of the fleet of 
scores of fishing boats; visiting the famous 
Begonia gardens; surf bathing on white 
sand beaches — the vacationist is assured 
the hospitality of a community blessed 
with an understanding city and county 
government and a modern, highly trained 



Police Department known for its tolerance 
yet strict enforcement of the law. 

As proof of the mildness of the climate, 
proud residents urge a visit to the world- 
famous Begonia gardens where are pro- 
duced 99% of the nation's Tuberous 
Begonias. 

Indeed, flowers and berries, especially 
strawberries and loganberries, abound in 
this region, the loganberry having been 
created in Santa Cruz county when Judge 
James H. Logan crossed the wild black- 
berry with the Lawton berry to give birth 
to the loganberry !

SCHOOL FOR VIOLATORS 

Chicago's traffic law breakers — drivers 
who do not understand the laws of safe 
driving, or because of physical or mental 
reasons cannot obey traffic rules — are going 
to be given special training in the Munici- 
pal Courts new Traffic Law Violators" 
School now being formed. 

'We know from experience that many 
drivers don't know the rules of safe driv- 
ing," said Chief Justice Raymond P. Dry- 
nialski, in discussing the project. "We aim 
to teach them these rules in our new school. 
If they can't learn or refuse to learn, we 
will then ask that they be ruled off the road. 
Too many lives are at stake to pamper such 
drivers." 

Chief Drymalski has appointed Arthur 
L. Conrad to direct the school and to con- 
duct other traffic safety education projects 
for the court. Mr. Conrad, who is a lawyer 
and holds a master's degree in education, is 
now in the process of organizing the school. 
He has visited New York, St. Louis, De- 
troit, Washington, D. C, and other cities 
which have similar training programs. 

Judge Dr)'malski explained that the new 
court traffic school has been planned as an 
integral part of Chicago's new traffic center. 
Judges sitting in the Traffic Court may send 
violators to this school in lieu of a fine, or 
as an additional penalty. 

"Traffic violators assigned to the school 
by judges will be required to complete the 
prescribed course successfully, and to p;iss 
an examination," Judge Dr)malski said. 
"If they fail to attend or pass the exam, 
judges may then recommend to the secre- 
tary of state that their driving privileges be 
suspended or revoked."

RADAR IN USE 

A total of 1,398 "radar" speed deter- 
mining sets, representing a two-year gain 
of 146.1 per cent, have been licensed by 
the federal government to state and city 
police and highway departments to check 
on motor vehicle spcecls, according to the 
Anicriean Automobile Association. 

The electronic devices are now licensed 
in all of the 48 states, the District of Co- 
lumbia, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, 
the AAA said in pointing out that the 
chances of motorists finding a stretch of 
electronic-free highway are growing less 
daily. 

Checking licenses issued by the Federal 
Communications Commission, the AAA 
said that Ohio is the leading user of radar, 
with 174 sets licensed. Wisconsin is second 
with 1 22, and Texxs, which slightly over a 
year ago had only 31, now has 110 of the 
devices.

The International Association of Chiefs 
of Police observed its 63rd anniversary in 
May. 

It was in Chicago, May 18, 1893, that a 
group of 51 chiefs of police met and for 
three days worked out details for a national 
organization and plans for better coopera- 
tion and improvement of police procedures 
throughout the country. It was Chief Wil- 
liam S. Seavey, of Omaha, Nebraska, who 
invited the chiefs to come to Chicago and 
he has the distinction of being the first 
lACP President. 

The idea of a national organization of 
police chiefs was conceived 22 years earlier 
by Chief James McDonough, of St. Louis, 
Mo., who invited police chiefs to a confer- 
ence in that city. Records do not indicate 
the number attending, but the problems 
discussed have a familiar ring — uniform 
crime records, juvenile delinquency, alco- 
holism, prostitution, and the effects of the 
Civil War upon the increase of crime. 

At the Chicago meeting the chiefs se- 
lected "National Chiefs of Police Union" 
for a name; two years later, meeting in 
Washington, D. C, the members voted to 
change the name to "National Association 
of Chiefs of Police," and in 1898, taking 
cognizance of similarity of problems of 
both U. S. and Canadian police, the name 
was changed to Chiefs of Police of the 
United States and Canada." Taking the 
final plunge toward internationalism, the 
organization voted in Louisville, Ky., in 
1902 to become the "International Asso- 
ciation of Chiefs of Police."

At the Chicago meeting the founding 
members succeeded in adopting a consti- 
tution and by-laws that made due provision 
for establishing in 1895 a central bureau 
for the exchange of Bertillon measurements 
and other information on wanted criminals. 
This was operated by the lACP through as- 
sessments upon member cities until 1923 
when its proposal for a federally operated 
fingerprint bureau was adopted by Con- 
gress and the records turned over to the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation. 

Chiefs of that era displayed the same 
keen interest and curiosity about how other 
departments operate as they do today.

COMMON SENSE 

Driving, like many another job, is a job 
that calls for a strong sense of responsibil- 
ity. 

It does no good to have the reactions of 
a cat, the eyes of an eagle, and the driving 
skill of a Barney Oldfield if you do not in- 
clude with these this strong sense of re- 
sponsibility. All your natural abilities and 
your acquired skills are soon brought to 
nothing if you add just a little too much 
nonchalance, a little too much of the feel- 
ing that "Well, let these other guys do the 
worrying, I'll get by. " 

The National Automobile Club points 
out that there are all too many drivers on 
the road today who feel that way. Speed- 
ing down the highway, they slump at the 
wheel half awake, leaving the problems 
that may arise all up to the other guy. Com- 
ing to a blind intersection they give their 
horn a little toot and then crash on through, 
feeling that the other guy can jam on his 
brakes in time. 

Driving is a job that calls for a strong 
sense of responsibility. If you don't give it 
that sense of responsibility, it may ver)' well 
take your life.

X-FACTOR IN RECUITING 



Page 11 



By 

Personnel selection techniques in law en- 
forcement have improved over the years, 
but there is still an area where further re- 
search is essential. 

There are devices which may satisfac- 
torily prove mental and physical fitness, as 
generally conceived. As administrators, 
however, we do not concern'ourselves with 
what psychologists and psychiatrists now 
refer to as emotional immaturity. 

Frankly, I believe everyone, to a degree, 
is afflicted with "emotional immaturit)', " as 
well as other forms, because of the imper- 
fections in human nature, but it is well to 
study and heed the danger signals which 
have been raised with respect to employing 
police officers who are emotionally imma- 
ture. 

The harm a police officer can do to him- 
self and the public when vested with the 
authority of a law enforcement officer if he 
is incapable of conducting himself prop- 
erly is incalculable. It exceeds the potential 
of that of almost any other field of en- 
deavor. Of course, the reverse is true also 
— namely, that the good which an emotion- 
ally stable, honest and efficient police offi- 
cer can do is likewise incalculable. 
Temper Tantrums 

Robert N. McMurry, a consulting psy- 
chologist, and his associates made a study 
of 220 cases and has set forth the results 
for benefit. Plagued by the realization that 
a great number of able-bodied, intelligent 
and well trained men and women were 
missing success, he was tired of the stock 
answer from employers: "They need a bit 
more experience, a few more years on their 
shoulders to season them," It was his dis- 
covery that the people rarely improved 
with the years. He noted that they contin- 
ued to avoid responsibilities, played "office 
politics," grew sarcastic and overly-critical 
of the work of their associates, had temper

transfers of personnel, oftentimes as an ap- 
peasement measure (which is wrong). 
Innately Selfish 
Of course, these emotionally immature 
employees are innately selfish, dependent 
And demanding. If ever they rise to posi- 
tions of command the administrator will 
find he is saddled with personalities un- 
willing to perform an unpleasant duty; de- 
sirous of being told what to do, yet often- 
times resentful when they are told. Seeking 
o)nsolation, in order to rationalize their 
own insufficiency, they curry it among sub- 
'fdinates, to the detriment of the policies 
set forth by the chief and his staff. Seif- 
]^ity salves their self-inflicted wounds. 

Dr. McMurry answers the question as to 
how they are employed in the first place. 
Many are technically well qualified. Even 
background reports, as we know, do not 
adequately cover psychological quirks. 
Many such persons have pleasant, even en- 
gaging personalities, and exercise their 
gifts of charm and good manners to exploit 
their interviewers. After all, they have 
spent their previous years exploiting by 
personal glibness and appearance, not only 
their parents, but teachers, associates and 
employers. Thus, they actually inveigle 
these persons concerned with their welfare 




tantrums or sulked if their opinions were 
not wholly accepted. 

A careful and minute study revealed 
that emotionally these people were still 
children and reacted as children in any un- 
usual set of circumstances. In addition, they 
were afraid to take a firm stand, afraid to 
be confidently positive in any instance. Re- 
sentment of success in others is another 
marked characteristic, coupled with bitter- 
ness and hatred of those who maintain dif- 
ferent opinions. In any organized group we 
know what a disruptive factor they become. 
They instigate and foment fueds, cause

LICENSE PLATES 

Two license plates are retquired on your 
car, one on the front and one on the rear 
according to the California Vehicle Code. 

"This law applies to all makes of auto- 
mobiles registered in California, " declared 
Patrol Commissioner B. R. Caldwell, "and 



to be less demanding, less critical, less ob- 
jective in their judgments. 

Soft Touches 

How often have you, as chief admini- 
strator, said of such a sergeant, lieutenant 
or captain, "There is no use in giving him 

this assignment; it won't be carried out . ^ , r . i 

properly. He is a good man. I like him very dnvcrs of California (;^rs with only one 
much, but he just dcK>sn't have what it takes plaje are subject to enforcement action 
for this particular project. This "good 
fellow ' has actually outwitted you and 
knows he will get only the soft touches, the 
easy assignments, while you pile the tough 
ones on the workhorses. This is neither fair 
nor honest. Face the facts, if he cannot fill 
the job, don't evade the issue and pass him 
by, else you yourself can be fairly categor- 
ized by others, even as you have categorized 
him. 

We all know about the type of police 
olficcr, generally assigned to traffic, who 
has gained a reputation for never tagging a 
car or making an arrest. The people love 
him because he lets them get away with 
violating the law. He is most likeable, a 
real doll, but he is not, nor will he ever be, 
a gtxid and efficient police officer. Very 
often, after his pension time is in. he grabs 
it c|uickly Then he runs for office, gets 
elected, absorbs some more of the taxpay- 
ers' money, and becomes one of your bosses. 
Perhaps the giH)d Dr. McMurr)' can write 
an essay on the emotional immaturity of 
the voting public; but immature or not. 
their action is binding and merely adds ad- 
ditional woes to the already harried police 
.idministrator. 

What's the Cure? 

What tan be done to cure the emotional 
immaturity in this type police officer ? Since 
Dr McMurry points out the principal cor- 
rectional factor is the individual himself, 
probably nothing. One does not easily 
ihange lifetime habits, especially since he 
has gotten away with it for so long. 
Neither, in my opinion, ought a police ad- 
ministrator be required to asiume the ti'sk 
of a psychiatrist and attempt such an indi- 
viduals reform If this type man or woman 
has spent a lifetime lying to himself and

TTie following rules were listed in con- 
nection with the installation of California 
license plates: 

1 . Two plates must be securely fastened 
to the vehicle, one in front and one on the 
rear. 

2. They shall be mounted not less than 
1 2 or more than 60 inches from the ground 
in a position to be clearly visible. 

3. The legibility of the figures shall not 
be impaired by any foreign material cover- 
ing the plate. 

4. The plates must be mounted on the 
vehicle for which they were purchased. 

5. Motorqcles, power cycles, and trail- 
ers are required to have only one plate 
mounted on the rear. 

HOWS YoillTpARKING? 

Ever take a look at your right front tire 
as a yardstick for measuring your steering 
finesse in parking.'' 

The National Automobile Club points 
out that if you have done well, the letter- 
ing on the tire sidewall will be intact. If 
not, you will find the lettering fairly well 
erased. Rubbing the tire against the curb is 
one of the best ways of shortening the tire's 
life, for the sidewall is made of a lot less 
tough material than the tread. 

others, why should he suddenly begin to 
make minute and true evaluations of the 
motives behind his own decisions? You 
and the department and the community as 
a whole arc better ofT without such an offi- 
cer, regardless of his rank. 

And now, you can answer the $64,000 
question for me: How do you convince a 
civil service, or personnel board, of the 
emotional immaturity of a police officer, 
and will they accept this as a valid reason 
for dismissal ? 

We are indebted to Dr. McMurry and 
his associates for this study and the mate- 
rial contained herein. We hope that he will 
continue his good work in this difficult 
field of human relations so that we in law 
enforcement as well as those in other walks 
may benefit thereby.

BANK ROBBERIES REDUCED 



Page 13 



FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover has an- 
nounced that the series of law enforcement 
conferences on bank robbery violations 
sponsored by the FBI last year has pro- 
duced positive results which promise to 
help stem the rising tide of offenses against 
banking-type institutions. 

According to Mr. Hoover, the confer- 
ences were greeted with 'enthusiasm and 
interest throughout the United States. "The 
conferences generally agreed that it is easier 
to prevent crimes against banks than to 
solve them; however, serious attention was 
given to the steps which should be taken 
after a bank has been victimized, as well as 
to security measures which reduce the pos- 
sibility of successful looting of banking 
institutions." 

In citing the benefits already derived, the 
FBI Director noted that on his return from 
one of the conferences, a banker in an east- 
ern cit)' arranged for the employees of his 
bank to review the information he had ob- 
tained at the conference. The following 
day, the bank was robbed; however, intel- 
ligent action on the employees' part resulted 
in the capture of the criminal before he 
could leave the bank. 

Less dramatic positive results of these 
conferences are found in better understand- 
ing and closer cooperation between law en- 
forcement and the outside organizations 
which participated. For example, among 
the matters discussed were alarms and other

BABIES "PRINTED" 

Sinic January 1 of this year, all babiis 
born in California have had their fiwt 
jirints recorded for positive identitication, 
.ilong with the finger prints of their moth- 
ers. Although some hospitals have volun 
tarily taken foot impressions of newly born 
infants in the past to avoid identit)' mixups. 
all hospitals in the state are now required 
to foot print the babies and finger print the 
mothers according to a law passed b) the 
California legislature last year. 

Amkndmlnt To La>x 

TTie measure retjuiring the finger and 
l(H>t printing was an amendment to the act 
lovcrmg birth certificates. The revised law, 
in addition to the tustomar)' data "cstahlis- 
ing the fatt of birth' and certain medical 
.md health data, now demands "that the 
fiH)t prints of the child and the finger prints 
of the mother shall be imprinted on the 
reverse side of the original ccrtifiiafe only." 
As in the past, the original certificate for 
each birth will be filed in the State Bureau 
of Vital Statistics at Sacramento. 

Duplicate copies of the certificates, such 
as those obtained by the individual citizen, 
will not show the finger and fcxjt prints 
because such copies are photostats of only 
the front side of the forms. Nevertheless, 
if the finger and foot impressions arc taken 
clearly enough they will help prevent baby 
mixups in maternity wards, and also will 
in time prove of aid in civilian identifica- 
tion in accident and disaster.

ADVANCE DOPE 

As the shifty-lcx)king individual pre- 
pared to leave the restaurant, another 
diner accosted him timidly: 

Excuse me, but do you happen to be 
John Smith of Newcastle." 

No, Im not, " snapped the shifty fel- 
low aggressively. 

"O'l — er — well, ' replied the other. 
you see. I am. and that's his overcoat

brushed a [sotted plant, upsetting it. She 
looked gravely at the flcwr and her large 
childlike eyes sought the ministers. "That s 
a hell of a pl.ice to put a lily. " she said.

FAIR MAKES STORY AWARDS 




TWO BEAUTIES and that's no Bull. The big fellow is BMW Prince Larry III, a Hereford and typical of the blue-blooded stock to be 
entered in the California State Fair & Exposition, scheduled August 29-September 9. She is Joni Kreatz, State Fair Model. Even if you pass 
up the Bull look for Joni ! 



The top reporting of the biggest news 
in the best state will be the basis for the 
1956 Press-Radio-Television Awards of the 
California State Fair and Exposition, Aug. 
29-Sept. 9. 

Bert J. Abraham, Bellflower, director 
in charge, said the fourth annual awards, 
to be presented during Press Day at the 
Fair, will put the accent on each commu- 
nity's big story and how it was handled. 

Every newspaper, television channel, 
radio station, magazine or industrial pub- 
lication in California will be qualified to 
enter. The story must have taken place be- 
tween June 1, 1955 and June 1, 1956. 

"Special awards for particular campaigns 
or features tend to eliminate some organ- 
izations which concentrate on reporting 



ihe news, " Abraham said. "Also, some- 
times such drives are staged specifically 
for the award." 

The 1956 awards will be based on a story 
that already has occurred. The magnitude 
or scope of the story is not all-important. 
A small town scandal, housing problem, 
or other event will be considered, just the 
same as disasters, accidents or mayhem in 
the metropolitan area. 

The key to the award will be how the 
big story was handled, how it was presented 
on the printed page, over the air, or on the 
television screen. Credit will be given to 
the behind-the-scenes master-minding, use 
of unusual means to get or communicate 
news or picture, and special enterprising 
by news staffs. 

In the industrial publication field, a 



big story within an industry, or a story 
about company-employe relations could 
qualify. 

Judging, by experts in each field of in- 
formation, will be on the basis of what is 
done with the resources at hand. News- 
paper awards will be divided into three 
categories: metropolitan daily, small city 
daily, and weekly. 

Television and radio stations will have 
two categories : metropolitan area and small 
city. All magazines and industrial publi- 
cations printed in California for California 
circulation will qualify. 

Entries must be submitted to the Cali- 
fornia State Fair in Sacramento by July 10, 
1956, Abraham said.

SCHOOL BUS RULE 

Some misunderstanding of the school 
hus law is indicated by the actions of many 
motorists when approaching a stopped 
schtx)l bus on the highway says the Califor- 
nia Highway Patrol. 

The law rccjuircs motorists to stop only 
when the school bus is stopped and the red 
lights are flashing," stated Patrol Commis- 
sioner B. R. Caldwell. "If the sun is in a 
position to make the lights difficult to ob- 
serve, it is well to slow down until you can 
discern the statxis of the lights. 

"It is not necessary to stop if the school 
bus is standing and the red lights are not 
fl.Lshing. It is advisable, however, in the lat- 
ter situation, to approach the bus at a con- 
trolled speed ana be prepared for a quick 
stop if some child should unexpectedly run 
across the highway without warning, 
the highway without warning. 

"The cooperation of every motorist is 
needed to provide maximum safety to chil- 
dren who use the buses," Caldwell said. 
"Motorists who stop on the highway when 
not required to do so usually cause their 
cars to become hazards resulting in rear end 
collisions and other traffic conditions lead- 
ing to possible accidents. 

"If the provisions of this law are not 
clear, complete information can be ob- 
tained at any highway patrol office. It is 
wise to know .uid obey all tralVu rules."

'CREEPY" TAKES "DOC" ON TOUR 



A story of "ladies of the night" and an 
ex-con, as told by Dr. Leo L. Stanley, for- 
merly San Quen tin's "Chief Croaker." 

Whether he is still alive or not I do not 
know. The last time I saw him was in the 
port town of Genoa, Italy, on a cold De- 
cember night in 1936. It was under rather 
peculiar circumstances that I met up with 
"Creepy" on this occasion. By all rules of 
the game he should be dead. He was a dope 
fiend. He had tuberculosis. He had spent 
over ten years of his life in San Quentin 
and Folsom prisons, to say nothing of time 
done in County jails. By now he should 
have been forty-eight years of age, and for 
one who led such a life as "Creepy", this is 
considered a ripe old age. 

Albert Perrino at the age of nineteen 
years was sent to San Quentin Prison for 
the crime of driving an automobile without 
the owner's consent. In other words, 
"Creepy" or "Twitchy" as his fellow cons 
nicknamed him, had stolen an automobile. 
The circumstances of the theft I did not 
find out. 

But as Chief Surgeon at the prison, 
"Creepy" came early to my attention. Every 
prisoner, on entrance to that institution, is 
carefully examined. Should he need medi- 
cal care he is immediately hospitalized for 
study and treatment. 

Drug Addict 

Perrino was soon found to be a drug ad- 
dict. And he complained that he had very 
severe pains in his back, and that he could 
not digest his food. He related that he had 
begun the use of morphine at the age of 
sixteen, because some of his friends said 
the dope would relieve the pains in his 
back. He had started with a very small dose, 
hop heads develop a tolerance for the drug 
and must continue to increase the dosage 
for the desired results. He was taking six 
grains a day when he could get it. The nor- 
mal dose, for ordinary purposes, is one 
twenty-fourth of this amount. 

The cause of "Creepy's" complaints was 
very difficult to diagnose. Some of my staff 
thought he was malingering and pretend- 
ing pain, so that we would continue to feed 
him morphine. This we decided not to do. 
We gave him what in prison parlance was 
called the "cold turkey" treatment. This 
was confinement in a good, comfortable 
hospital room with all necessary nursing 
attention. He was, in no minced terms, told 
that he had had his last injection of mor- 
phine. No putting on an act, nor any 
amount of pleading would change the deci- 
sion of the Medical Department. He was 
assured that he would not die, although he 
might have some withdrawal symptoms. 
Still within a week or ten days these would 



pass and he would be on the road to re- 
covery. 

At that time the hospital nurses and at- 
tendants were prisoners themselves. They 
had no undue sympathy for the hop head 
who was considered amongst the scum of 
the joint. But they followed out the Doc- 
tors orders to the letter. There was no 
monkey business, no slipping in of a shot 
for a consideration. Only the free personnel 
doled out the narcotics for which a strict 
accounting must be made. 

"Creepy" soon broke his habit. But he 
was still sick and complaining. He was a 
frequent visitor to the morning sick line. 
All of our staff tried to help him. He be- 
came a "hospital pest". 

In 1926 I opened his belly. He had a 
bad appendix. Throughout his abdomen 
were calcified lymph nodes denoting a pos- 
sible chronic tuberculosis. On recovery he 
was given light work in the open air and a 
single open air cell. 

But he got into trouble with the prison 
officials. He committed some infraction of 
the rules which sent him to the dungeon for 
a short sojourn. And he was again admitted 
to the hospital for further treatment. 

After he had been in the pen for over 
two years he was paroled. It was not until 
1931 that I heard from him again. What 
he had done in the meantime I could not 
find out. He claimed to have been a candy 
maker. Possibly he did some kind of easy 
work in this line. But it is more that proba- 
ble that he lived by minor crime amongst 
others from states' prisons who gather 
around attractive Los Angeles just as many 
retired people do. 

Trouble Again 

On this occasion he wrote me from Tank 
13-E-2 Los Angeles County Jail. He asked 
that a reply be sent in the name of Albert 
McDillon. 

He was in some sort of trouble again. He 
asked that I write the Superior Court, tell- 
ing them of his illness and requesting the 
judge to send him to Spadra, a narcotic

hospital. Apparently Albert had little 
doubt that he was going to be convicted of 
the charges against him. 

"I am in trouble here and if you can see 
fit to do this favor for me, I will appreciate 
it very much," he pleaded. 

My intercession for him was ineffective. 
He was sent to Folsom Prison, the institu- 
tion for second offenders. 

Albert next came to my attention in June 
1934. At that time, before the airplanes 
were extensively used for transporting 
deportees to the East Coast for transmissal 
by ship to their native shores, deportation 
trains gathered up, across the continent.

those who were adjudged unworthy of re- 
maining in our country. 

Once each year, one of my staff or my- 
self went on this train as medical attendant. 
This gave one of us a round trip to New 
York without expanse. 

"Cri-epy" Aboard 

On this deportation train, leaving from 
San Francisco was "Creepy" Perrino. He 
was being deported to Italy. He was to be 
delivered to a ship at Houston, Texas. Of 
course I talked with "Creepy" as well as to 
many other ex-convicts, and undesirables 
who were being c-scortcd out of this country 
by Immigration Department order. 

When he, with some other Italians, left 
our train at Houston, under heavy guard, I 
felt that I had indeed seen the last of 
"Creepy", one of our "miserable brothers." 

Being Chief Surgeon of a forty-five hun- 
dred man prison such as San Quentin, has 
Its problems, vexations, wcrric-s and hard 
work. In the fall of 1936, I asked for a 
leave of absence and signed on as Ship 
Surgeon for a three month's trip around the 
world on the liner Pres/Jeiil Harrison. 
Being Ship Surgeon on any ship is no sine- 
cure. But it has a popular appeal. Every 
doctor at some time in his life has looked 
forward to sailing the seas as a medical 
officer. 

On this long trip the sailors aboard our 
ship gave me much more trouble, worries, 
and vexations than did many of my con- 
victs in prison. 

At Naples I was kept busy patching up 
some of the crew "damaged " in waterfront 
brawls. 

It was a day's travel up the Italian coast 
to Genoa. The weather was cold. There 
was a miserable rain. When the ship was 
finally brought to the dock about ten 
o'clock that night I fear my spirits were 
low indeed because of the general conduct 
and demeanor of the crew. 

Hi: Goes AsHORK 

As it was late I decided that I would 
go ashore, even though it were raining, 
take a walk to exercise the muscles after 
having been ab<iard all day and to take in 
some of the ti>wn by myself. 

Up from the well-constructed wharf, or 
ouay, is a railroad running parallel to the 
shore. On a higher level, reached by a 
ramp and stairway, is the first street, like- 
wise parallel to the wafer front. 

I walked leisurely along this embarca- 
dero toward the south, in pa.ssing a saloon

or restaurant, I saw some of the ship's 
boys already at it. A street walker seated 
at one of the tables, spied me. Evidently 
thinking I might be out for adventure, 
she quickly got up and came out. 

I had gone only a few more steps when 
I saw a form slowly approaching me. It 
was a man, he was thin and stooped. He 
had a worn mackintosh and a slouch dark 
hat drawn down over his face. 

Three feet in front of me, he raised 
his head, stopped as though transfixed, 
pierced me with his eye and ex-claimed, 
"Well, for Christ's sake, if it isn't Doc 
Stanley." 

For a moment I could not make out who 
it was. Then it dawned upon me that this 
night prowler was no other than "Creepy " 
Perrino! 

My surprise was as great as was his. 
Never, when "Creepy" left the deporta- 
tion train at Houston, did I ever expect 
to see him again. He extended his hand. 
Even in the pale light from the tavern I 
could see the expression of joy in meeting 
me again. 

"Doctor," he said feelingly, "I have 
thought of you many times since I last 
saw you. And tonight I thought I saw a 
ghost as you came up the street. I recog- 
nized your walk immediately. I surely am 
glad to see you. " 

She Quits Him 

The little street walker, when she saw 
I had friends in Genoa, gave a queer little 
flip to her posterior, turned about and went 
off in the opposite direction in search of 
other prey. 

I explained to Perrino why I was walk- 
ing the waterfront streets of Genoa at this 
time of night. He said he had nothing to 
do for the evening. As the weather was 
cold he would enjoy walking about with 
me and talking about old times and friends 
from the '"hoosegow ". 

I could easily have retraced my steps 
and returned to the Harrison. But no, here 
was adventure, with whom could I go 
about the slums and dark spots of Genoa 
under a more knowing guide than this ex- 
convict, dope fiend, robber and possible 
cut throat and murderer? I knew that 
'"Creepy"' had hated me at times while he 
was in San Quentin, for I was an officer. 
Many prisoners dislike, if not hate, those 
into whose custody they are placed. Per- 
rino may have remembered me with dis- 
pleasure when we gave him the "cold tur-

key" treatment for his drug addiction. 
During his various sojourns in the hospi- 
tal I had to be firm but, I hope, fair with 
him. 

But here in Genoa, thousands of miles 
from home, "Creepy" atted as though he 
were my long lost brother. 

"You know , Doctor," he said as we 
walked slowly along, "I somehow had a 
hunih I would see you again some place. 
Isn t that queer .^ I have had a very hard 
time of it since I have been over here. In 
the tirst place I am not a native of Italy. I 
was born on Cananea, Mexico. My father 
was an Italian. He had a good dairy farm in 
Mexico. But he was driven out by the fol- 
lowers of Pancho Villa. My father is dead, 
my mother and three sisters live in Los 
Angeles. My sisters are all working and 
two of them are with the Telephone com- 
pany. They are good girls. I hear from 
mother once in a while. 

Saved His Life 

"Well, you know I went to Quentin. 
And I know I caused you plenty of trouble. 
But you saved my life. When I was in 
Folsom for the second jolt I did all but 
seven months. The Immigration Author- 
ities said they would deport me to Italy 
if I wanted to go. I thought that might be 
better than staying the rest of my life in 
the stir. So over I came on a slow boat 
from Houston. 

"Well," he continued, apparently happy 
to have some one in whom he could con- 
tide and one who fairly well understix)d 
his problem, "when I got over here I 
could not speak a damned word of Italian. 
And I had to learn that. There was no work 
for me. I was none too well, having been 
on the junk. But I went to the Chief of 
Police and explained everything to him. 
He was very good to me. He has treated me 
like I wiis his brother. He knows I am a 
citizen of Mexico, he tells me that I can 
go back there whenever I want. I manage to 
make a living smuggling in a few cigarettes 
from these American ships. And I get a 
little money from the boys by showing

them the places where the girls live. I get 
by all right." 

I noticed he could not walk as fast as 
I. The hills of Genoa are fairly steep. 

"Tobacco here," he continued stopping 
occasionally to take a full breath, "is quite 
a luxury. The tax is high. But the police 
are pretty strict. Here in this country you 
just can't bribe one of these fellows. It is 
impossible. I know, I have tried. They 
take their jobs seriously. They will not 
break their word. " 

What he told me about the tobacco I 
knew was correct. Before our ship had 
arrived in Naples, all the tobacco of the 
crew, with the exception of a few ciga- 
rettes, was sealed in secure lockers. Later a 
search was made by the ship's officers to 
see that no cigarettes were at large. For- 
merly some of the crew smuggled tobacco 
into Italy. They got fair returns for it. 
There was danger of penalizing the ship. 
For this reason strict precautions were 
taken. 

"Creepy" Hungry 
I could see that the living Perrino made 
from this form of smuggling was not lux- 
urious. He was not particularly clean. He 
wore a pair of large felt shoes. He contin- 
ually smoked cigarettes. His hands and 
fingers, besides being dirty, were badly 
stained with nicotine. He had a persistent 
. cough. Smoking is not good for one who 
has lung trouble and I remembered that 
one of "Creepy's" peeves against me, in 
San Quentin was that I tried to restrict his 
cigarettes while he was in our hospital. Per- 
rino's face was sallow and pasty besides 
being thin and peaked. His nutrition was 
bad. I just guessed he was unable to get 
enough to eat. 

By this time we had come to the large

opera house in front of which was a beauti- 
ful fountain illuminated by colored lights. 

"It is here that Caruso used to sing," 
volunteered my companion. "And just a 
little farther on is the place where Colum- 
bus was born. Would you like to go over 
and see it?" He queried interestingly. 

The stone house in which the discoverer 
of America was born is in the center of the 
business district of Genoa. It is surrounded 
by large business buildings and banks 
somewhat reminiscent of the Little Church 
Around the Corner in New York, nestled 
down in the well of the skyscrapers. 

On our way back toward the waterfront 
we talked of old times, of the many odd 
characters encountered in prison and of 
some of the officials we recalled as "Sheet 
Iron Dan ", "Whispering Annie", "Old 
Sour Puss ', "Six Shooter Jack ", "Squeaky 
Davis", Green Apples " and others. 

And we recalled many of the incidents 
which at the time seemed serious, but at 
which we could now smile. 

Looks Them Over 

In passing a very narrow alleyway, 
"Creepy" said that it was up this passage 
way that the girls of easy virtue lived. 
"Would I like to look see? " 

"Yes, I would," 1 replied, realizing that

one could find no better escort nor one 
more familiar than he with the shady side 
of life. It was probable that it was to the 
girls he sold the American cigarettes which 
he received from the smugglers. 

The door, which had a small wicket, 
was opened by a rather elderly Italian wo- 
man who recognized Perrino through the 
peep hole. No doubt she thought he was 
bringing in a customer for the girls. 

We walked up a short flight of stairs. 
The madam greeted us. She was a short, 
dark woman, with a rather pleasant and 
friendly face. She was very plainly dressed 
in black. We were ushered into a warm 
and well lighted room. Red plush settees or 
benches were placed around the sides. It 
might well have been a waiting room for 
a bus line. It was fairly large with plain, 
cream colored walls. 

Seated about on the benches, to my

wonderment were aKiut ten men, most of 
them fairly well dressed. Some might have 
been truck drivers or laborers. To my 
inquiry of "Creepy' a.s to who these men, 
sitting around were, he replied. 

"Oh, these fellows just come in here to 
get out of the cold. Guess they should be 
home. But they like to come in here and 
see the girls. They don't do much business. 
And the madam doesn t drive them out. 
Some come in here just to digest their dm- 
ners and pick their teeth." 

I thought to myself, "American custom- 
ers would not like this kind of a reception 
committee. " 

Metts Thi: Girls 

SiK)n two of the girls came into the room. 
One spied us and came over to the bench 
where we had taken our place amongst the 
toothpickcrs. She evidently knew "Creepy " 
and began to talk in Italian with him. She 
was a plump woman of about twenty-one or 
two. Well-formed, cjuite amiable, she really 
had a nice personality. Perrino introduced 
me to her and to others of the girls, equally 
charming as the first. Evidently he was 
giving me a great build up. As he talked, 
others of the girls gathered about. The 
madam joined in. Business for the moment 
could go hang. 

"Creepy " said I was one of the foremost 
surgeons in America, that I was at the 
head of a great hospital. I had operated on 
him and saved his life. He even pulled 
up his shirt and showed the operation scar 
on his belly. And more-over, he said, I had 
the gift of merely feeling the pulr.e and 
being able to tell exactly what was wrong. 
I could see some of the girls involuntarily 
extend their forearms to let "this great

man " see what was wrong with them. And 
they listened open eyed. 

While "Creepy" talked, I took in more 
than an eyeful. A beautifully shaped girl 
came in and joined the circle. She had on 
nothing more than a black net, tight-fitting 
covering. The spaces in it were about halt 
an inch square. The dress, if it could be 
called that, set her off beautifully. But she 
might as well have had no clothes on at all. 
She reminded me of some of the Femmes 
du Nuit whom I had seen in Paris at a place 
called "Le Sphinx ". Here the girls wore 
only a verj' narrow breach clout. It was a 
modern bikini without the bra. 

When I could get in a word amidst all 
the interrogations of the girls, I asked 
"Creepy" to tell me something about the 
girls themselves. How they happened to 
get into this way of life and how they 
fared ? 

Tklls Hi:r Story 

One of the girls, who seemed most in- 
terested in us, said that she was left an 
orphan at an early age. She married when 
quite young. She now had a daughter eight 
years old. Her husband had died leaving 
the child to support. This, the oldest pro- 
fession in the world, was the only thing 
left for her. 

Other girls told similar stories through 
the interpreter, without any reluctance.

from ten to twentv inmates are licensed by

the Italian Government. The girls are ex- 
amined every morning at eleven o'clock 
by Doctors and are given certificates of 
good health. None is allowed to "work" 
unless in possession of the required card. 

Proceeds from the first four customers 
of the night go to the house. All amounts 
collected by the girl after that may be re- 
tained by her. There may be certain levies 
for room, board and other necessities. 

The charge for "ser\ice '" in this house 
was in 1936, five liras which in American 
mont7, at that time, was equivalent to 
twenty -five cents. 

On our way back to the ship "Creepy" 
suggested that we visit one more house, 
this one a really high class place. The price 
here was equivalent to our fi]l) cents. 

This house really did have an air of re- 
s[>ectability about it. The building, unim- 
posing from the outside, was in reality 
quite in gcx)d taste within. The furnish- 
ings were of the best. The walls were deco- 
rated with excellent murals and paintings.

American of means would have considered 
it vet)' nice. 

Here, as in the other joint, were ten or 
a dozen men sitting about in the parlor. 
The girls were very pretty and attractive 
and most of them young. They were mod- 
ishly dressed in evening gowns. There was 
none of the nakedness as displayed in the 
other brothel. If one did not know just 
where he was, he might, with the display 
of propriety and respectability, think him- 
self in a drawing room with a group of 
beautiful and cultured ladies. No liquor 
of any kind was served. The girls walked 
about. Were not forward or solicitious 
in insisting that the visitor go upstairs 
with them. 

We had gotten into the place just a few 
minutes before twelve o'clock, which was 
closing time. Women attendants or maids 
began to turn off some of the bright lights. 
Announcement was made that the place 
was soon to close for the night. Some of 
the men reluctantly got up and moved 
toward the door. They did not like to be 
turned out into the night. 

At a signal, the girls left the floor, 
much as a worker might quit his task 
when the whistle blows. Perrino said that 
these girls do not entertain gentlemen 
after twelve o'clock, that they remain in 
the house most of the time, sleeping and 
dining there. It is not often that they go 
out except for shopping and possibly to the 
theatres and other places of relaxation. 
But when they do appear on the streets 
or in public places they are well dressed. 
They maintain all the respect and dignity 
of the best ladies of the land. 

"These women are fine pieces of mer- 
chandise," "Creepy" remarked as we left 
the establishment. 

Perrino was my guest for a midnight 
snack at a tavern not far removed from 
the docks. He did not eat much. 

He escorted me back to the ship. There 
at the gangplank I emptied my wallet of 
all the lira I had. They would be of little 
use in Marseilles, our next port of call. 

Noticing I had a few greenbacks in my 
bill fold "Creepy" remarked that it would 
probably be a long and cold winter in Italy. 
Could I spare a few of them they might 
help to keep a poor boy warm and possibly 
out of trouble. 

Ex-cons have often put the bee on me for 
a loan which they have never paid back. 

"Creepy" Perrino got an unexpected 
windfall. He ran true to form. But I often 
think of "Creepy." I know that with all 
his badness he had a great deal of good in 
him.

are benefits in which the public, the motor- 
ist and the patrol members can take justi- 
fiable pride. 

"To each of you, we extend our congrat- 
ulations and gratitude for your faithful ser- 
vice, and for a job well done." 

Voicing the appreciation of the city. 
Mayor George Christopher said to the Pa- 
trols : 

"The School Safety Patrol program from 
its beginning in 1923 has been a vital force 
in protecting children from modern traffic 
hazards. That death has failed to strike at 
a Patrol-guarded crossing in 33 years since 
the Patrols were organized is truly an out- 
standing record for which I am truly grate- 
ful. You have my sincere congratulations 



and the felicitations of all the people of 
San Francisco. ' 

Praises Tracy 

Superintendent of Schools Harold Spears 
praised the Patrols, saying: 

"We are living in an unusual age. Our 
streets are covered with automobiles. We 
must teach young people how to protect 
themselves against the civilization we have 
created. I have great faith in the new gener- 
ation, more so than in the old. We look to 
you boys and girls for help. I would like to 
remind those of you here today that behind 
every School Patrol member is a conscien- 
tious teacher, and behind all the Patrols we 
have Inspector Thomas B. Tracy of the Po- 
lice Department." 

Monsignor James N. Brown, superin- 



tendent of Catholic schools, expressed ap- 
preciation for a "job well done" to Chief 
of Police Ahern, Inspector Tracy, princi- 
pals, teachers and parents — "especially to 
the mothers who stayed up late ironing 
those white duck trousers." 

Others who spoke briefly were Light B. 
Yost, secretary, and Mrs. Raymond Sayre, 
member of the President's Committee for 
Traffic Safet)', in attendance at the Western 
Region Conference in San Francisco. Mrs. 
Sayre appealed to Patrol members to "help 
your mothers and fathers to be good 
drivers."

The ceremonies opened with an invoca- 
tion by Police Chaplain John A. Collins 
and the Pledge of Allegiance by the 1 1 bat-

talions of Safety Patrols massed on Kezar 
field, led by Captain Robert Marlborough 
■ I the West Portal School Patrol Unit. 

After the introduction of guests of honor 
by Mr. Sesnon, the Battalions started their 
march, headed by Sergeant Matthew C. 
Duffy and Officers Charles Maggioncalda 
md Eugene Van Tricht of the Police 
Si hool Safety detail. As the units passed the 
reviewing stands, the various units were an- 
nounced by Inspector Tracy to the loud ap- 
plause of organized groups of classmates 
and the general public. 

Each Patrol unit was led by high school 
R. O. T. C. officers who had drilled the 
scjuads for the review under the supervision 
of Major John J. MacArthur. 

Foi'R Bands Play 

Music for the occasion was furnished by 
four junior high school bands under the 
direction of Dr. Earl D. Ernst, director of 
music for the public schools. 

Following the march, each Patrol unit 
returned to its original position on the field 
to await the award of merit ribbons. 

As Chief Ahern, Colonel of the Patrol 
Regiment, announced the awards, the flag 
bearers of the winning schools stepped for- 
ward and formed a line in front of the re- 
viewing stand. They remained at attention 
while the merit ribbons were affixed to 
their school flags. 

The ceremonies closed with the singing 
of the National Anthem. 

Among guests of honor in the review- 
ing stand were Harold R. McKinnon, pres- 
ident, and Paul A. Bissinger and Thomas 
J. Mellon, members of the San Francisco 
Police Commission; Otto Meyer, director 
of Trafhc; and Captain Ralph Olstad, com- 
manding the Tratiic Bureau. 

Adolfo de Urioste, president of the San 
l'ranci.sco Board of Education; Louis Sutter, 
prc-sident of the Recreation and Park Com- 
mission; Mrs. Tony Patch, Second District 
PTA president; Mrs. Arthur E. Lang, pres- 
ident-elect of Catholic Parent-Teacher 
Groups; and Iver C. Larson, managing di- 
rector, San Francisco Chapter, National 
Safety C!ouncil.

7. Make it so tough to get a drivers 
license that only a person who is physically, 
mentally and emotionally qualified to drive 
in modern traflic can get one. 

8. Take the license away from any driver 
as soon as he demonstrates inability to drive 
as a decent, sensible citizen should drive. 

Up To Public 

9. Back traffic courts to the limit in 
showing errant drivers and walkers that it 
just isn't smart or healthy to behave self- 
ishly or dangerously in traffic. 

10. Encourage constant improvement in 
automobile design to make it easier to drive 
safely. 

The traffic situation, the Council empha- 
sized, can be improved in direct ratio to 
public acceptance of those 10 objectives. 
But it will require organized effort, dedi- 
cated leadership by influential persons in 
public and private capacity, and a willing- 
ness to work and pay for safety and better 
traffic facilities. The Council pointed out 
that safety, like everything else worthwhile, 
costs money, time and effort. 

And what will happen by 1966 if Amer- 
icans team up in a real and continuing traf- 
fic improvement program? 

"You'll get where you're going a lot 
easier and sooner," promised the Council. 
"And what's more, the traffic toll will come 
down by half!"

BEAUTIFUL SANTA CRUZ 

(Conlhiued from Page 7) 
Trees" a must trip for anyone within the 
vicinity. 

In this issue of the Police and Peace 
Officers' Journal may be seen a natural 
Bridge of Rock, a remarkable example of 
years of erosion and a notable part of 
Natural Bridges State Park — right in the 
city of Santa Cruz itself. 

In a salute to Santa Cruz and the entire 
Monterey Bay area, Motorland recently 
sang its praise of the area in the following 
language: 

"In the north is Santa Cruz, with its 
famous beach and lovely gardens, and 
backed by the Santa Cruz Mountains with 
their redwoods. Southward are historic 
old Monterey and Carmel, the art colony 
which has now become a Mecca for sight- 
seers and vacationists. South, again, ex- 
tends a road between the mountains and 
the sea which is one of California's scenic 
mar\'els. 

"And as if all this were not enough. 
Nature has endowed the inland valleys 
with such soil and climate that agriculture 
flourishes on a tremendous scale. 
Nabobs' Resort 
"Santa Cruz grew from the mission of 
the same name, founded in 1791, and the 
settlement of Branciforte, established six 
years later. It might have been any other 
community in pastoral California until the 
Gold Rush, but then the newcomers de- 
manded vegetables which the Santa Cruz 
area was able to supply, and lumber, for 
which the redwood forests in the nearby 
mountains were raided. 

"Even in the seventies, however, this 
was known as a resort region, where the 
nabobs from San Francisco came to take 
their ease and recuperate from the strains 
of their latest coups of high finance. It 
came into full stature with the building 
of its first beach casino in 1906. Though 
this promptly burned, it was as promptly 
replaced with the ornate structure the pub- 
lic sees today. This has been further im- 
proved and renovated in recent times, Ss 
has also the Coconut Grove dancing pavil- 
ion which is an outstanding beach feature. 
Beside the mile-long beach of white sand 
with its beautifully clear water there is an 
indoor salt-water plunge and a boardwalk 
which runs eastward to the San Lorenzo 
River. These, with a varied assortment of 
rides and concessions, drew 2,000,000 vis- 




COUNTY OF CONTRASTS— is Santa Cruz County whose beaches and salt water fishing are 
nationally famous. But besides these, this resort county offers many other pleasures such as 
being enjoyed by these horesmen on one of the many Santa Cruz County trails. 



itors last year and bid fair to excel that 
figure by a fifth this season. 

Claims To Fame 
"The city has other claims to fame in 
that it is the scene of the annual Miss Cali- 
fornia contest and the terminus of a yearly 
yacht race from San Francisco. 

"In the Santa Cruz Art League Galleries 
is a life-size wax-work, 'The Last Supper,'

modeled on DaVinci's famous paintinr; 
of the same name. In four years K ha: been 
visited by more than 260,000 persons. 

"In the nearby mountains arc the per- 
manent convention sites of several reli- 
gious groups, one of which includes con- 
vention city. It is a city of flov/crs. The 
Spanish Garden at its city hall is beauti- 
ful. The drive north along the ocean front 
takes the visitor past bluffs which arc 
ablaze with colorful succulents and flow- 
ers. In season, whole hillsides soutli cf 
the city flame with yellow bush lupine. 
^.imc of these plants have trunks as thick 
rough a', a man's leg. 
"AH through the mountains are inter- 
secting roads; the Empire Grade route 
from S.mta Cruz through Bonnie Doon to 
Houlder Creek is particularly pointed out 
■ visitors. In spring, so are the mountain 
jiplc orchards along the Valencia Cree!c 
route fro.m Santa Cruz to Watsonvillc. 

"Highly rcenic routes from the north to 
tlie Monterey Bay region are, first, the Sky- 
line Drive from San Francisco, then down 
to the 5an Lorenzo Valley and on throug!i 
fine redwood; to Santa Cruz, and, second, 
t'le bc.vjtiful highway which follows the 
hirclinc from San Francisco south. The 
i.'.in route over the mountains from Los 
iiatos to Santa Cruz is rpectacular. The 
highway from Sant.i Croz to Watsonvillc 
i i a concrete ribbon bc.wccn lovely rolling 
iiills gay wit'i color. On the Hccker Pass 
route from the Santa Clara Valley to V7at- 
ronville you can sec redwoods, the whole 
( oa-.t of Monterey D.iy, and four charming 
lit.le la'x-.. The Chittenden Pass route, 
u'xd by railroad and highway, traverses 
^^orge of real scenic interest. 

"Santa Cruz has its face to the future, 
lonttrcy, at the other end of Monterey 
M.iy, never forgets that it was the place 
wlierc history began for this region. 
LANDrn In 1770 
"It was in what is now the city of Mon- 
itrcy that Portola, first governor of Cali- 
torni.i, and Father Junipero Eerra landed 
11) 1770. Under an oa'x tree near the chore 
the ;;cK)J father held a 5er%ice and foindcd 
> mission. A stone cross today marks the 
[ot. though the mission v.as coon re- 
moved to its present site at the mouth of 
the Carmcl Valley to be away from the 
presidio, or military post, whii h Portola 
set up. At this mission Father Scrra madr 
his headquarters and from it he supervised 
he buildinr of the mission chain. 
■"Under Spanish rule, presidio and mis- 
on were a'most the settlement but after 
(cxiio had gained independence, adobe 
•mcs grew up in the hills, stores were 
iiilt along the cnwked streets and the 
Mcxiian g.ivernment, less averse to for- 
ign trade than the Spaniards, built a cus- 
toms house. This still stands and. restored, 
houses a museum. It is one of five State 



Historical Monuments in the region, the 
others being the Scrra landing place al- 
ready mentioned; the Casa del Oro, which 
housed a store; the house where Robert 
Louis Stevenson lived for a few months 
late in 1879, and Californias First Thea- 
ter, originally a sailors boarding house. 

'There are also standing more than a 
rcorc of other structures erected in this 
Mexican era, including one built in 1835 
by Thomas Oliver Larkin, first United 
States consul at Monterey, and Colton 
Hall, meeting place of the Constitutional 
Convention in 1849. This, like almost all 
the other remaining buildings, has been 
restored. 

Historic Sites 
"Monterey has laid out a scenic route 
leading directly to or near all of these his- 
toric structures, and also including sev- 
eral historic sites. Visitors may traverse 
this route merely by following an orange 
line painted on the street paving. At many 
point; on it, special parking is rescr\cd 
for them. 

"Whichever way you turn, there is 
ccmcthing to be seen in this region. Just 
across from the Customs House is Fish- 
erman's Wharf, where the restaurants 
would feel unhappy if they had to serve 
yoi' today fi h that was caught as long ago 
as yesterday. Alongside it, the fishing fleet, 
decked in all the colors of the rainbow.

ARRESTS FOR DRUNK DRIVING 

A total of 2,905 persons were arrested 
for drunk driving in the unincorporated 
areas of California during the first quarter 
of 1956, according to the National Auto- 
mobile Club. This represented an increase 
of 576 or 24.73 per cent over those arrested 
during the first cjuarter of 1955. 

Boaters are advised by the National 
Automobile Club not to throw out floating 
refuse that will be washed up on beaches. 

American farmers owned seven million 
cars and trucks in 1954, according to the 
National Automobile Club.

COLOSSAL FIGURES 

Some idea of the growth in automobiles and automobile travel in Cali- 
fornia is supplied by the statistician of the National Automobile Club. In a 
report to the Police and Peace Officers' Journal, the Club presents some 
colossal figures to show the phenomenal growth of this state. 

There were 6,618,936 drivers' licenses outstanding in the State when the 
study of registrations was completed as of February 29th. Of this tremen- 
dous total, 6,195,859 were held by operators and the remaining 423,077 by 
chaufifeurs. 

As an indication of the steady increase in auto travel in the San Francisco 
Bay area, the same source reported that a total of 10,711,530 vehicles passed 
over the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge during the first four months of 
this year. 



NET OUT FOR SLOW POKE 



Driving in the passing lane on multi- 
lane highways and driving too slow on two 
lane roads are serious accident-causing vio- 
lations of the California Vehicle Code, says 
the Highway Patrol. 

"With the approach of summer, Califor- 
nia traffic is expected to reach an all-time 
high, " declared Patrol Commissioner B. R. 
Caldwell. "In order that our highways may 
accommodate with safety the hea\7 traffic 
volumes anticipated, there must be stricter 
obedience to the traffic rules. It is essential 
that all motorists accept the responsibility 
of not impeding or hampering traffic," 
Caldwell continued. "There are far too 
many accidents caused by drivers traveling

SAFE VACATION? 

Motorists starting on vacation trips 
should kep in mind the five major causes of 
accidents during this season of the year, 
says the California State Automobile Asso- 
ciation. 

1. Stay within the speed limits. About 
one-third of the fatal accidents involve a 
speed law violation. 

2. Don't drink and drive, or drink and 
walk on streets or roadways. In about one- 
fourth of the fatal accidents a driver or an 
adult pedestrian has been drinking. 

3. Keep your car in good condition. It 
is bad enough to have a breakdown that in- 
terrupts your vatation and plays havoc with 
your vacation budget; it is worse to be 
killed or injured as the result of unsafe car 
conditions. 

4. Take it easy. Don't drive until you're 
worn out. Take a coflFee break, a short nap. 
a walk. 

^. Rcspeit the weather. Plan your vaca- 
tion trip so far as possible during good 
weather. Don't try to push through dense 
fog or blinding rain, especially on unfam- 
iliar roads. 

These are sound, sensible rules, says the 
AAA motorists' organization. Observe 
them, and you have a much better chance to 
enjoy your vacation. 

STIFF PENALTIES 

Motorists unable to comply with Calif- 
ornia financial responsibility laws will be 
subject to stiflfer penalties under a Vehicle 
Code amendment effective July 1 . 

The new law will require suspension of 
tl'.e driver s license, the license plates and 
the vehicle registration and the impound- 
ment of the vehicle in case of an accident 
resulting in death, injuries or damages to 
the property of any one person in excess of 
$100. if the motorist does not have automo- 
bile insurance coverage, cannot deposit the 
security rec|uircd by the Department of 
Motor Vehicles, or otherwise establish ex- 
emption from such requirements. 

In effect, the new law will make it im- 
possible for the involved vehicle to be 
legally driven by the registered owner or 
anyone else if the driver or owner cannot 
furnish proof of ability to respond in dam- 
ages, according to the California State 
Automobile Association. Present law mere- 
ly calls for the suspension of the driver's 
license. 

Carrying automobile bodily injury liabil- 
ity and property damage liability insurance 
is the most practical way for the average 
motorist to avoid license and registration 
suspensions and possible vehicle impound- 
ment resulting from inability to meet legal 
requirements, the CSAA said.

JUVENILE DELINQUENCY PROBLEM 



Juvenile delinquency and crimes of ado- 
lescents are matters of grave concern in 
every community of the United States. 
Problem youth are no longer peculiar to 
slum areas or congested neighborhoods. 
All classes, all neighborhoods, all com- 
munities have-problem youth. Their num- 
ber is increasing and the offenses they 
commit are becoming more serious in 
character. 

The many and varied prevention pro- 
grams of public and private agencies have 
been unable to halt the growth of the 
problem. There is no reason to believe 
they can prevent the anticipated increase 
in delinquency predicted for the near 
future. We are told that a million youth 
become involved with the law each year. 
In a few years, over a million and a half 
will be in the hands of police, courts, and 
institutions. 

Conferences are held while youth are 
succumbing to this social "cancer." We 
need action — decisive, well directed, and 
coordinated. Above all we need sustained 
continuous action. We have no possession 
more important than our youth. Every 
community must take on a long-term job. 
This job will require self-sacrifice, dili- 
gence, cooperation. The job can be done. 
What is needed is leadership. 
Police Challenge 

The police of each and every commun- 
ity in this country can and should provide 
that leadership. The Challenge is there for 
all. Police departments that are really ser%'- 
ing their people, departments with intelli- 
gent capable administrators are accepting 
the challenge and are standing up to the 
tide that brings with it tragic waste. 

The traditional concept of police is that 
they are repressive agents concerned only 
with the enforcement of law and the ap- 
prehension of those who violate the law. 
The great advance in police work — in 
selection of personnel, training, communi- 
cations, transportation, scientific police 
work — all these have added to this nar-

row interpretation of police responsibility 
and service to their people. 

Actually our police have been accepting 
many responsibilities beyond those of sup- 
pressing crime and making the apprehen- 
sion of the criminal more likely. Police 
are recognizing and working with com- 
munal responsibilities including race rela- 
tions, civilian defense and crime preven- 
tion. 

Witness Tragedy 

Since the turn of the century and par- 
ticularly since the 1930's police have been 
seriously concerned with this problem. 
They are constant witnesses to the fact that 
the processes of criminal justice do not 
always prevent crime nor always rehabili- 
tate the offender. Each day police officers 
are given an unusual opportunity to wit- 
ness the tragedy of the criminal career. 
Daily they • contact felons and misde- 
meanants who threaten the peace and se- 
curity of our communities. These crimi- 
nals did not become violators of the law 
over night. In most cases there is a con- 
tinuing record of offenses, arrests, court 
actions, institutional care — a record that 
goes back into childhood to delinquent

behavior. Most criminals are grown-up 
delinquents. 

Policemen are quite positive that chil- 
dren are not born bad. There is a serious 
appreciation of the variety and complexity 
of the social and psychological factors un- 
derlying the maladjustment of our youth. 
Need Coordination 

With the appreciation of a multiple- 
factor theory in delinquency "causation," 
police recognize the need for coordination 
of all the facilities of our communities. 
Moreover, many come to accept their 
unique position in the community which 
makes police the most desirable agency to 
bring about the coordination and stimu- 
late the continuing action — activities 
which must become realities if the prob- 
lem of delinquency is to be resolved. 

No other single agency in any com- 
munity is responsible to prevent crime and 
therefore delinquency. No other agency 
can boast of the neutrality of its service 
and thereby possess the unusual right to 
call upon all services to work for the 
moral and social well-being of youth. Po- 
lice are not educators, social workers, psy- 
chologists or psychiatrists, or religious

leaders. They are [X)liceiTien sworn to 
serve their people — to protect them in 
their lives and their property. The most 
valuable of our possessions is our youth. 
Police are becoming more and more con- 
cerned with protecting and preserving 
them. 

Present Status 

Throughout the United States many 
progressive police administrators, truly 
concerned with the welfare of the people 
of their communities, have been progres- 
sively developing a new approach to our 
problem youth. 

There is a very distinct philosophy be- 
ing developed to mo.tivate this new work. 
Without losing sight of a youths res- 
ponsibility for his or her actions, there 
is an appreciation of contributing factors 
that can prompt undesirable behavior. 
Predicating on this philosophy, police in 
these communities are developing pro- 
grams in three distinct areas. 

First, there is work that might best be 
described as the control aspect. Here the 
emphasis is on suppressing contributing 
factors that come within the province of 
police responsibility. 

Understanding 

Second, there is an avoidance of indis- 
criminate arrests of youth, an effort to 
understand their particular problems, and 
a referral to a community agency best able 
to redirect the youth into socially desirable 
behavior. 

Third, police are organizing the total 
agencies and facilities that can serve youth 
— into coordinated action programs de- 
signed to fight delinquency by promoting 
the moral, physical and scKial well-being 
of all children. 

While no single department has devel- 
oped an ideal program in all thrc-e of 
these areas, the pattern has been estab- 
lished. This is the actual and potential an- 
swer to the challenge offered to police by 
the need to do something constructive for 
our youth. With more training and guid- 
ance, as more police departments in large 
and small communities accept the chal- 
lenge and recognize their responsibility to 
develop a prevention program, we may 
confidently hope to see the rising tide of 
delincjuency brought under control and 
eventually sec it recede. 

Police Theories 

Before considering, in some detail, the 
three phases of police prevention work, a 
few observations should be made on po- 
lice thinking in terms of "causation" of 
delinquency and adolescent crime. 

Police who have been engaged in deal- 
ing with problem youth arc very much 
aware of the confusion that exists 
amongst those who theorize about "causa- 
tion." While not pretending to be sociolo- 
gists or psychologists, police recognize the

many and varied factors that motivate be- 
havior. Fortunately, these police do not 
succumb to the "particularistic" fallacies of 
those who proffer a theory and hold that 
"it" and "it" alone is the answer to the 
problem. 

It is interesting to observe the extent 
of police knowledge in this area. The 
problems of a tense complex society are 
appreciated as well as such matters as 
housing, living standards, employment, 
recreation, and the like. Police, too, have 
an awareness of the psychological factors 
and the interrelation between these and 
the sociological factors that motivate and 
influence behavior. 

Complete Repair 

Important, however, is the awareness 
police have of some fundamental factors 
related to the problem. One realizes that 
police believe most proposed programs 
are comparable to minor repairs in a leak- 
ing dike. Until something is done to com- 
pletely repair the dike, we will not hold 
back the pollution that is weakening our 
youth.

wholesome youth, police see the need to 
do something about our homes, our 
churches, and our schools. 

The home must be a sanctuary of love, 
security, guidance, and discipline. Too 
many homes are but places to eat and 
sleep. Too many parents have no concept 
of the moral and social responsibilities of 
parenthood. Too many children are no 
more than biological accidents. Delin- 
quents and adolescent criminals ccm; 
from such homes. 

Social Conduct 

Religious affiliation must be more t':aa a 
nominal relation. There must be active 
family participation externally and intern- 
ally. These police are practical enough to 
laugh at the thought of establishing good 
social conduct that is not rooted in good 
morals. 

As for education, these police are look- 
ing for a school system that has its ulti- 
mate goal, the training of the total indi-

programs is concerned with control. Here 
concern is with persons, places, and con- 
ditions that contribute to the degradation 
of youth. 

Action in these cases is primarily of a 
traditional police character. Adults who 
prey on youth — fagins, sex perverts, liq- 
uor and drug dealers, and such are ar- 
rested. Places and conditions that promote 
delinquent and criminal activity by youth 
are observed and suppressed. Dance halls, 
poolrooms, hangouts of all sorts, violating 
the law in regard to youth are effectively 
dealt with through traditional police ac- 
tion. 

This phase of the work presents no new 
challenge to police. The techniques used to 
correct these conditions are understood by 
all police. Patrol work by the staff of the 
prevention unit, complemented by the 
entire department including the detective 
division, is directed towards the elimina- 
tion of these influences. 

All that is needed to accomplish this 
part of the program is the will to do the 
job. Without favor to anyone or any 
group except the well-being of youth, 
police can really reduce the social liabili- 
ties of any community that exists because 
of such individuals or conditions. The 
youth of all communities are entitled to 
having the cess-pools cleaned out and kept 
clean. 

Here's Example 

A story in point comes to mind. A ju- 
venile officer of an eastern city had come 
upon a cabaret owner who had sold liq- 
uor to a minor. When the officer began 
his questioning, the owner began to list 
the prominent people he knew. The officer 
reached for the license, preparatory to re- 
moving it from the wall and officially 
closing the cabaret pending a hearing. 
"Do you kno%v this girl — are you con- 
cerned with her future.'" The owner had 
no answer and the politeman wasn't im- 
pressed with the owners list of friends. 
Apparently the owner knew and cared 
about the wrong people. Incidentally, he 
never got his license back. 

In many communities, those who made 
their living by preying on the moral and 
social behavior of youth have come to 
have a healthy fear of police juvenile offi-

cers. These officers seem to weigh every- 
thing in terms of the good of "kids" and 
nothing else. 

Here we are concerned with the second 
phase of police prevention work. The 
work is new and not in keeping with tra- 
ditional police responsibility. Despite 
problems, police have been developing 
this area, recognizing that it is a vital part 
of the work. 

One might define this area as being: 
the identification of the delinquent or 
adolescent offender; diagnosing his or her 
needs for social rehabilitation; and then, 
referring the individual to an agency of 
the community that can provide the help 
necessary to effect a change in the youth's 
behavior. 

"Lip Servicf ' 

There are a few police departments in 
the country paying "lip" service to this 
phase of the program. Except for the 
most trivial cases, in which they do little 
or no constructive work, they process all 
cases to court. These departments are mak- 
ing no contribution to police prevention 
programs and have no right to such a 
title. 

Many departments, however, are doing 
serious and effective work in securing 
treatment for youth in need of help. In- 
discriminate arrests, so often unnecessary 
and harmful in the effect, are being 
avoided. 

The worthiness of this effort is attested 
by praise and cooperation given to many 
police prevention units by churchmen, 
jurists, social workers, and others con- 
cerned with the welfare of youth. 

In this phase of the work, traditional 
police thinking and techniques will not 
suflfice. Here we have need for a new 
philosophy, sympathetic understanding, 
knowledge of human nature, an apprecia- 
tion of the capacities of our community 
resources, and a strong determination to 
make use of every facility to help redirect 
an erring youngster. 

Community Work 

More than one article could be written 
on the treatment of the individual. There 
is so much that must be considered as we 
approach the delinquent or adolescent 
criminal with the hope of putting our 
hand on the weak spot in his makeup. 
Possibly we can treat more intensively of 
this area in subsequent articles. This area 
of the program is difficult but rewarding. 
Here it is we stop the growth of delin- 
quent to criminal and instead witness the 
development of good men and good 
women. 

The control and the prevention of ju- 
venile delinquency and adolescent crime 
is not the sole responsibility of the police 
department. No one agency could accept 
such an obligation. No agency can oflfer

a service that can cope with the problem. 
Responsibility for helping youth is a com- 
munity one. Parents, the church, the 
school, all agencies and people must 
attack this social evil. 

Programs for the moral and physical 
betterment of youth exist in most com- 
munities. The problem is that much of 
what the)' do is not directed to a definite 
objective. Frequently services are dupli- 
cated for some children. Moreover there 
is no long-term continuous attention that 
is essential to combat this problem. 

Police prevention work should be con- 
cerned with the stimulation and coordi- 
nation of community facilities. 
Intelligent Force 

Good guidance and continuous stimu- 
lation, with the objective of helping 
youth, will weld our communities into an 
intelligent force for good. Here is con- 
structive public relations at its best. Here 
is one of the best weapons to fight the 
degradation of youth. 

What has been said in this article repre- 
sents an evaluation of the philosophy of 
police prevention work and a brief con- 
sideration of the three main functions po- 
lice are developing as they assume this 
new and most important responsibility to 
the people of their communities. 

There is considerable more to be con- 
sidered. The matter of organizing a police 
prevention unit should be given detailed 
presentation. This includes: 

1 . Surveying to determine the problem, 
the assets, the liabilities of a community. 

2. Determining policy — the age and 
the sex group to handle — types of offenses 
that should De handled by the unit. 

Proper Training 

i. The position of the unit in the or- 
ganizational structure of the police depart- 
ment. 

4. The selection of personnel and their 
training. Training can be organized in 
most communities with little or no strain 
on departmental budgets. 

^. Establishing the proper relationship 
between the unit and the service agencies 
of a community. 

6. An understanding of the public rela-

THE UTILITY WORKSHOP 



OCEAN AVENUE

tions involved in police prevention work. 
This requires an appreciation of the dis- 
tinct groups that must be dealt with and 
the proper attitude that should be estab- 
lished between the unit and these distinct 
groups or "publics. " 

7. Forms and records suitable for refer- 
ral, investigation, evaluation, and report- 
ing must be devised. There is need for 
only a limited number but they should be 
effective. 

8. From time to time there should be 
evaluative studies. Such studies intelli- 
gently devised and objectively undertaken 
can determine the success of programs and 
will indicate the type of change in pro- 
gram that may be necessary. 

Conclusion 

The evidence indicates a great future in 
police prevention work. Nowhere has its 
full potential been completely realized. 
The pioneers in police prevention work 
have outlined the work that must be done. 
Our colleges are ready and willing to help 
police forge the new "tools, " the under- 
standing, the techniques for diagnosis of 
human behavior. 

The Department of Police Administra- 
tion at Michigan State College is intensi- 
fying its police prevention training. More- 
over, through this department and Con- 
tinuing Education at Michigan State Col- 
lege, short courses are given for police 
juvenile officers. They are ready to do 
more if asked. 

>X'hat is needed? A reaffirmation of 
faith in youth and a determination by all 
police to enter into this new and im- 
portant area of police service. Police pre- 
vention work is fast becoming an import- 
ant part of all the social forces working to 
resolve a serious social problem. It has a 
specific place at which to stand in the 
fight on delinquency and adolescent crim- 
inality. It arrived on one of those infre- 
quent steps that society has taken in chang- 
ing its concepts about the treatment of 
criminals. Should police not accept the 
challenge to advance the worth of this 
work, society will necessarily take a step 
backward.

A CITATION OR AN ARREST? 



Traffic officers, judges, and prosecutors 
pondering the question of whether the issu- 
ance of a citation, ticket or summons to a 
traffic violator constitutes an arrest will be 
interested in two recently reported cases on 
the subject. 

In Ci/y of Toledo v. Lowenburg, 99 
Ohio App. 165, 131 N.E. 2d, (1955) the 
defendant, given a citation at the scene of 
an accident to appear in the Toledo Muni- 
cipal Court to answer a charge of failure to 
yield right of way, later appeared, stood 
trial and was convicted. On appeal she con- 
tended she was under arrest upon receiving 
the citation from the officer, and that an 
arrest for misdemeanor not committed in 
the officer's presence was an unlawful de- 
tention amounting to false arrest. In deny- 
ing this contention the court said : 

"False arrest consists of an unlawful and 
total dentention or restraint upon one's 
freedom of locomotion, imposed by force 
or threats. In the instant case no restraint, 
total or otherwise, was imposed upon de- 
fendant by the officer's citation. So far as 
the record shows the subsequent appear- 
ances of defendant in court were voluntary. 
It is clear that this is not a case of unlawful 
detention or false arrest." 

False Arrest 

In Hart v. Herzig, 283 P. 177 (Colo. 
1955) game wardens went to Herzig's 
home and issued a summons for him to ap- 
pear in justice court on charges of game 
law violation. He did not appear as di- 
rected, but sued the officers for false arrest. 
In reversing a judgment in his favor the 
Supreme Court said : 

"All that defendant Forget did was to 
make out a sujnmons for the plaintiff to 
appear in justice court, and whether or not 
the defendant Forget told the plaintiff he 
was under arrest, which is disputed in the

evidence, these facts in themselves were not 
such an interference with plaintiff's liberty, 
or such a restraint upon his voluntary action 
and conduct as to constitute any unlawful 
restraint of plaintiff, and further, the evi- 
dence disclosed that plaintiff did not re- 
spond to the summons in any way * * * 
"The question then is raised: Does the ser- 
vice of the summons without legal efficacy 
and the assent of the plaintiff to appear in 
justice court constitute an arrest? The an- 
swer is, no." The court quotes extensively 
from Berry v. Bass, (La.) and People v. 
Yerman, (N.Y.) infra. 

That this represents the prevailing view 
is confirmed by a review of the cases on the 
subject (all emphasis supplied) : 

In Mornian v. Barati. 35 N.Y.S. 2d 906, 
909 (Supreme Ct.— Nassau Co.— 1242), 
a police officer (Baran) gave Morman a 
"ticket" for violation of a state traffic law. 
Upon his appearance before the police jus- 
tice in response to the citation. Mormon 
found himself not charged with that of- 
fense but with violation of a city ordinance 
relating to other (non-traffic) offenses. He 
sued Baran for abuse of process, i.e., false 
arrest. The court said: "Such summons is 
an invitation to a defendant to come into 
court so that he may not be subjected to the 
embarrassment of arrest. If he failed to ap- 
pear on the return day a warrant could be 
issued based upon an information and de- 
positions in connection with the offense 
committed. Such information and warrant 
would constitute an original proceeding,

however, and the failure of the defendant 
to appear in answer to the previously issued 
ticket would have no connection therewith 
except insofar as it would indicate to the 
magistrate issuing the warrant that a state 
of facts existed where a warrant was neces-

California Case 

Bannr v. AUxaiider. 244 P. 2d 43'^' 
(Dist. Ct. of App.-Calif.-19^0), was simi- 
lar to the above case in that Barrier had 
been given a citation by Alexander, a state 
patrolman, to appear in court for a traffic 
violation. He failed to appear and was 
later arrested under a warrant. There was 
some confusion about the trial date and in 
his suit against the officer for false arrest 
Barrier contended there was an illegal ar- 
rest in the first instance so that the court was 
without jurisdiction. Referring to Vehicle 
Code sec. 737, (authorizing the issuance of 
traffic citations) , the court said: 

"It is evident that the quoted portion of 
the section has no application to plaintiff's 
case because no arrest was waJe at the lime 
of the alleged offense, and the only arrest 
of the defendant was at a later date upon a 
warrant isued on an amended complaint by 
a magistrate having jurisdiction of the 
offense." 

In Berry v. Bass. l')7 La. 81, 102 So. 76 
( 1924 ), plaintiff sought recovery of dam- 
ages from the mayor and town marshal 
for false imprisonment. Upon a disturb- 
ance complaint made before him. Mayor 
Bass directed the marshal to notify the 
Berrys to appear before him. This the mar- 
shal did, notifying both Mrs. Berry and her 
husbind to come to the Mayor's Court, 
held in his clothc-s pressing shop, the fol- 
lowing morning, because of the complaint 
that had been lodged against them. Both 
appeared and pleaded guilty. Mrs. Berry 
was sentenced to jail, from which she w.is 
soon released becaase of her health. In 
denying recovery the Supreme Court of 
Louisiana said: 

"We hold that the foregoing facts do not 
show an arrest. In S C. J. Arrest, sec. 2 it is 
said: The custody or control, the assump- 
tion of which is involved in .an arrest, im- 
ports actual restraint or dentention.' ♦ • ♦ 
Now we are auitc ready to admit that the 
actual use of force is not necessary to con- 
stitute an arrest, but the intention to arrest,

i.e to take into custody, must be there, and 
must be evidenced by some unequivocal 
act, as by keeping the arrested party in sight 
and controlling his actions. 

"But one person can no more arrest an- 
other by simply telling him 'to consider 
himself under arrest' and then turning on 
his heel and leaving that person free to go 
his own way, than one can commit a homi- 
cide by merely telling another to consider 
himself dead. On the contrary the very pur- 
pose of merely notifying a person charged 
with some offense simply to appear before 
a magistrate is precisely to avoid arresting 
him therefor; it is precisely not to deprive 
him of his liberty for the time being; it is 
for the very purpose of leaving him master 
of his own movements until the time fixed. 
And the person so notified or summoned is 
no more under arrest than a witness sum- 
moned or notified to appear before a magis- 
trate on a given day. Nor is the fact that he 
is told to consider himself under arrest any 
more potent to make him be under arrest 
than his being told to consider himself an 
emperor's son to make him a crown 
prince." 

The court cites a number of English cases 
to the same effect, notably the language of 
the great English jurist Lord Mansfield 
who said: "How can a man walking freely 
to a magistrate prove him to be arrested.'" 

In People v. Yerman, 138 Misc. 272, 
246 N.Y.S. 66^ (Oneida Co. Ct.— 1930), 
Yerman had committed a traffic offense in 
the presence of an officer who directed him 
to appear in City Court on the following 
morning. He appeared as directed, pleaded 
guilty, paid his fine and appealed, claiming 
illegal arrest. The court (Hazard J.) held 
there was no arrest by the officer. "He sim- 
ply told him that he should appear in the 
city court of Rome on the following morn- 
ing. While it may be true that such a pro- 
cedure has about all the binding eflfect of a 
'royal invitation' — in other words, of a 
command, I do not think it amounted to an 
arrest. * * * On appellant's own statement 
he went to the police station the next morn- 
ing on his way to work."

VACATION HINTS 

When vacation rolls around and you're 
about to take off for the mountains or 
the sea, these last few hours of prepara- 
tion tan prove to be mighty feverish. With 
all the things that have to be done, con- 
fusion can ver)' easily set in, and most of 
us are pretty lucky if we don't fmd our- 
selves winding up the cat and putting out 
the cicxk. You can avoid a lot of this con- 
fusion, points out the National Automobile 
Club, if you will just start a little bit ahead 
of time and do a little bit of planning. 

Before closing up the house make ar- 
rangements for the care and maintenance 
of your garden and lawn and avoid coming 
back to a porch that is cluttered up with 
magazines, newspapers, and bottles of sour 
milk, by arranging to have a ncichbor take 
in your mail and by stopping deliver)' of 
your papers and milk. Bclore stepping out 
that front door make sure that you have 
turned off the gas supply to your stove 
and water heater and the pilot light of 
your furnace, have pulled the plugs on 
electrical appliances, and have turned off 
your refrigerator. Check your windows 
and dcwrs to sec that they arc all securely 
Icxkcd, don't invite burglars by pulling 
down all the shades in the house, and give 
the local police a chance to watch your 
house with extra care by telling them how 
long you will be away. 

Your car, too, is going to need some 
checking before you start. Have the me- 
chanic go over it to sec that it's properly 
tuned up and working well. Tires should 
be in good repair, wheels in true alignment, 
brakes properly adjusted, and the steering 
wheel mechanism strong and sound. Sec 
that your chassis is properly lubricated, 
your crankcasc is filled with clean oil, and 
your oil filter is doing the job. Have your 
water pump, fan belt, and radiator looked 
over. And don't forget that electrical sys- 
tem. Have a check made on your batter)', 
your generator, your spark plugs, and all 
your lights. 

Take along with you your operator's 
license and registration certificate, your 
insurance identification card, credit card, 
driving glasses, first aid kit, an adequate 
supply of maps, a flash light, matches, car 
tools, a whisk broom, cloth for your wind- 
shield, an extra set of car keys, and a good 
bit of consideration for your fellow motor- 
ists on the road.

STUDENTS' POSTERS 



Twenty-one art students in San Francisco 
schools won honors in the nationwide 
school safety poster contest conducted by 
the American Automobile Association and 
its affiliated clubs. 

The traffic slogans illustrated by the stu- 
dents were "Cross Only At Corners" and 
"Wear White After Dark." 

A total of 8,456 entries were submitted 
to the contest by primary, elementary and 
high school students from the United States 
and Canada. 

This year's Grand Prize winner is Rich- 
ard Rios of Modesto High School, Mo- 
desto, California. 

Approved by the National Education 
Association, the contest is conducted by the 
AAA to obtain designs for posters force- 
fully presenting specific traffic safet)' rules 
which are used for hallway and classroom 
reminders to school children. 

Each school year the CSAA distributes 
more than 300,000 of these posters and

State revenues during April from excise 
taxes on March distributions of alcoholic 
beverages totaled S.3,957,731, according 
tv Cxorge R. Reilly, First District Member 
of the State Board of Ecjualization. This 
amount is almost double the prior month's 
figure and only 6 percent below the record 
collections on December l^")^ distribu- 
tions. Of the total month's revenue, S3,- 
*) 30,568 was collected on distilled spirits, 
S369,201 on beer, and the remaining $57,- 
962 on wine. ■ 

Wholesale distributions of distilled 
spirits during March totaled 2,353,700 
gallons, an all-time high for the month. A 
27 |x-rcent gain in gallonage over the 
March 1955 hard litjuor distributions and 
an increase in tax rate from 80 cents to 
SI. 50 a gallon which went into effect last 
July were mainly rc-sponsible for the bulge 
in current revenues. 

Taxable California sales of beer during 
the month under review totaled 18,635,000 
gallons, an increase of 759,000 gallons or 
4.2 percent over the volume of a year ago. 
Included in the total were 2,186,586 gal- 
lons of eastern beer, but these imports were 
more than balanced by the 3,189,000 gal- 
lons of California-brewed beer that were 
sent out of the State and were not subjc-ct 
to the State's excise tax. Also exclucied 
from the tax base were a third of a million 
gallons of beer that were sold to the United 
States armed forces. 

Taxable distributions of all types of wine 
during March aggregated 2,895,315 gal- 
lons, a volume which, while only one- 
tenth greater than that of a year ago, ex- 
ceeded the sales to retailers during the pre- 
ceding month by 5) percent.

The fabulous history of the State of Cal- 
ifornia will be recounted in a series of lec- 
tures planned for September by the Uni- 
versity of California. "Land and Life of 
California" a program consisting of nine 
illustrated lectures by members of the Uni- 
versity faculty will be offered both in Ber- 
keley and San Francisco. 

Program coordinator is Lesley Byrd 
Simpson, Professor of Spanish, Emeritus, 
at U. C. In announcing the unique lecture 
series, Dr. Simpson said, "The organizers 
had in mind the amazingly rich background 
of the history of our State and the natural 
curiosity shared by all of us about the land 
wherein we live. This is exciting stuff, too 
frequently hidden within the drab jackets 
of learned publications. It belongs to us, 
to all of us, and we can hardly fail to en- 
rich our lives. 

"There is almost no limit to the bright 
facets of this country which we should love 
to look upon," Dr. Simpson continued. "It 
would be rather wonderful, we think, by 
means of talks such as these, to awaken in- 
terest in the history of our State, and go on 
and on, exploring wherever our fancy leads 
us, past, present, future." 

Lectures will deal with such topics as 
Ancient Volcanoes of the West Coast; The 
Evolution of the California Landscape: the 
Life History of California; the Story of the 
Fossils; Earthquakes and Their Causes; 
Climate in California; Aboriginal Use of 
Food Resources; The California Indians; 
Impact of European Culture on Native 
Life; and The Arts of the California In- 
dians. 

Speakers will be Howell Williams pro- 
fessor of geolog)'; Norman E. A. Hinds, 
professor of geology; Charles L. Camp, 
professor of paleontology; Perry Byerly, 
professor of seismology, John B. Leighly,

USE OF RADAR 

Radar and other electronic devices 
should be used to determine what the speed 
should be for a particular highway zone 
instead of being used entirely for enforce- 
ment, says the California State Automo- 
bile Association. 

The motorists' organization jwints out 
that an important contribution can be made 
to the solution of the traffic accident prob- 
lem by a scientific redetermination of speed 
limits and the establishment of realistic 
speed zones through the use of electronic 
ecjuipment. 

"It isn't conducive to accident preven- 
tion and safety on our highways to insist 
upon unrealistic speeds and to enforce 
those speeds with electronic devices. More- 
over, such devices cannot in any way de- 
termine whether a speed is safe in view of 
existing conditions of traffic, weather, ve- 
hicle or driver, " says the CSAA, adding: 

"If speed laws are to be enforced with 
split-second, electronic time-measuring de- 
vices, ecjual attention should be given to 
using modern methods for establishing 
sensible, scientifically-determined speed 
zones applicable to individual stretches of 
highway. " 

The AAA club also stated that right 
now Congress is wrestling with the huge 
problem of financing a greatly expanded 
road-building program. The roads in ex- 
istence now and the roads to be built can- 
not and will not be used wisely and with 
maximum efficiency if out-of-date, unreal- 
istic sj-iccd zones arc continued in effect.

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 

The Great Diamond Hoax 



Page 43 



One of the greatest hoaxes in the history 
of California got under way one day in 
1871 when Philip Arnold and John Slack 
strode into William Ralton's San Francisco 
bank and emptied a dusty poke of dia- 
monds on the amazed banker's desk. 

One of the most influential men in San 
Francisco at that time, Ralston got together 
with some other financiers of the day and 
tentatively offered Arnold and Slack $100,- 
000 for a small interest in the new diamond 
field the men claimed to have discovered. 

While Ralston and his friends checked 
the background of the two miners and 
found them to be apparently respectable 
men, Arnold proposed to cut short any 
dillydallying on the paying of the $100,000 
by going out to the field and bringing back 
a couple of million dollars in diamonds as 
collateral. 

With raised eyebrows, the financiers 
agreed to this scheme, and the miners set 
out. Some weeks later they returned to 
civilization, apparently weary and bedrag- 
gled, to explain that a raft they had been 
using to cross a swollen stream had cap- 
sized and left them with just one small bag 
of diamonds. 

Ralston promptly sent the small bag to 
Tiffany's in New York for appraisal and 
Tiffany's told him that the diamonds were 
worth about $150,000. That did it, accord- 
ing to the National Automobile Club. The 
boom was on. The financiers offered 
Arnold and Slack $600,000 for a 75 per 
cent interest in the diamond field, formed

the San Francisco and New York Mining 
and Commercial Company, and started sell- 
ing stock. 

Still wary about handing over the money, 
Ralston sent some experts out with the 
miners to their newly discovered field. Led 
there blindfolded, the experts soon were 
picking up diamonds, sapphires, and rubies 
all over the place. When they returned with 
that fine news, even Baron Rothschild 
bought stock in the new company, and Rals- 
ton turned over the $600,000 to Arnold 
who, with Slack, promptly disappeared. 

The boom, however, didn't last too long. 
Soon Clarence King, United States Geolo- 
gist of the day, examined the field and in- 
formed all interested parties that it had 
merely been planted with low-grade dia- 
monds, some of them even partially cut and 
polished. 

Arnold was tracked to Kentucky, and 
offered to settle out of court. Shortly after,

HARD STARTING 

If your car is hard to start the trouble 
may be defective spark plugs or ignition 
points, or a carburetor that needs over- 
hauling. Check these first, says the Cali- 
fornia State Automobile Association, 
when your car starts hard.

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 

Cash To Aid Police Study 



Page 49 



The Kemper Foundation for Traffic Saf- 
ety, Chicago, will provide grant - in - aid 
awards totaling S37,200 to police depart- 
ments to enable them to send qualified 
officers to the Traffic Institute, Northwest- 
ern University, for the 1956-57 traffic po- 
lice administration training program. 

Ray Ashworth, acting director of the 
Traffic Institute, in announcing the awards, 
said that they represent sixteen $1,650 fel- 
lowships and sixteen $675 tuition scholar- 
ships. Eight awards of each categor)- will 
go to municipal police departments and 
eight to state and county police and high- 
way patrol agencies. 

The Kemper awards for 1956-57 are be- 
I ing given in the Institute's 20th anniversary 
I year. The Institute was established April 
' 15, 1936, and the Kemper Foundation in 
the same year by the Lumbermens Mutual 
'. Casualty Company and the American Mo- 
i torists Insurance Company. The Kemper 
! Foundation has contributed funds for po- 
; lice training at the Institute continually 

i' since 1936. 
The 1956-57 training program will be- 
gin September 20, 1956, and continue 
I through June 17, 1957. June 1 is the dead- 
i line for police departments to apply for 
I grants-in-aid and for admission for their 
! representatives. Application forms may be 
i obtained from the Traffic Institute, 1704 
. Judson Avenue, Evanston, Illinois. 
j The nine-month training program, de- 
signed especially for staff and command 
traffic police personnel, comprises four ma- 
jor areas of study and activity; 1) Prob- 
lems in Highway Transportation, and the 
agencies concerned with them; 2) Func- 
tions of the Traffic Police, covering acci- 
dent investigation, traffic law enforcement, 
and traffic direction; 3) Management of 
Police Ser^'ice, and 4) General education 
courses which are arranged to increase the 
competence of the student and to provide 
answers to problems in traffic police man- 
agement found in the fields of psychology, 
economics, sociology, and political science. 
Factors considered in selection of depart- 
ment representatives and granting of 
awards are: 1) the applicant's ability and 
potential usefulness to his department; 2) 
extent of the accident and congestion 
problem in his city or state, and 3) his de- 
partment's plans for the profitable use of 
his training to further improve its traffic 
supervision program. 

To be eligible to compete for admission 
and for award consideration, the applicant 
must: 1 ) be not more than 45 years of age; 
2) be a police officer in active service in a 
municipal, county, township, state, federal, 
or provincial agenq'; 3) have had at least 



three years of police experience; 4) have 
the approval of his superintendent, com- 
missioner, or chief of police; 5 ) be assured 
of a leave of absence — or equivalent tem- 
porary status — from his department, dur- 
ing which his salary will be paid; 6) have 
the assurance of his superior that he will 
be returned to active service upon complet- 
ing the course; 7 ) agree to return to his de- 
partment for at least three years, and 8) be 
in good health and physically fit. There are 
no educational prerequisites. 

Selection of candidates is made by a se- 
lection board composed of representatives 
of Northwestern University, the Interna- 
tional Association of Chiefs of Police, and 
the Kemper Foundation for Traffic Safety. 
Before the selection board meets, appli- 
cants are given examinations and are inter- 
viewed by Institute staff members in their 
home departments. 

"To increase the possibility of having a 
man selected from their departments," Mr. 
Ashworth said, "police chiefs are encour- 
aged to permit all policemen of the rank of

Horseless Carriage Does It! 



Page 31 



Ever pause for a moment to give a 
thought or two to the way in which the 
automobile has changed the American 
scene? In addition to requiring the build- 
ing of the close to three and a half million 
miles of highways that link our towns and 
hamlets "from sea to shining sea," our 
more than sixtyjnillion motor vehicles have 
really made quite a dent in our way of liv- 
ing 

Consider the farmer. Fifty or sixty years 
ago, points out the National Automobile 
Club, he lived a comparatively isolated life, 
shut off from the towns and cities by miles 
of miry roads over which there was little 
or no transportation. But along came the 
automobile and the farmer went without 
some household goods, because he knew 
that he couldn't go to town in a bath tub, " 
bought himself a car, and started to enter 
into the community and social life of the 
city. 

The city dweller changed his ways, too. 
No longer did he need to dwell in the very 
shadow of the factory or office building. 
Mass transportation by motor vehicle per- 
mitted him to get to his job in a hurry, and 
to get away from it again. Now he could 
live well out from the city, could live where 
there were grass and trees, and so suburbia 
began to bloom. 

All over the country, in every way of life,

people started to be on the move. No 
longer were they born, raised, and buried 
in one little valley. Now they took off to 
see what lay beyond the hills. Farmers 
moved into cities, city folk moved into the 
country, and all kinds of folk moved all 
around. Just take a look at the license plates 
in the parking lot the next time you make a 
trip to Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Grand Can- 
yon, or the like. 

Within the great big tours there were 
little trips and the motor vehicle made 
changes in the smallest details of our lives.

year. The tax rate rise was relatively small 
because there was a 97 per cent increase 
in assessed valuations of tangible property 
last year, part of which resulted from the 
intercount)' equalization orders that were 
issued in August to 14 counties. The aver- 
age tax rate in the 13 counties that com- 
plied with these orders dropped from 
$7.21 in 1954-55 to $6.35 this year, while 
that in the rest of the State was rising from 
$5.88 to $6.14. 

The tax levies of school districts amount- 
ed to $516,095,260, an increase of 11.4 
per cent over the preceding year's figure. 
These levies, accounting for almost 42 per 
cent of the total 1955-56 property taxes, 
averaged $2.58 per $100 of assessed value.

PISTOL RANGE 

(Conlinued from Page 6) 
sounded like it had water in it. Boots and 
slickers, ear muffs and red flannels, were 
the uniform of the day. 

The new "X" type of target seems to 
be going over fine with the ix>ys and so 
far no beefs of any importance. 

Looks like Bob Chow, the SF gunsmith, 
is trying to put all the "cracker barrel" 
boys to work for him. All the guys that 
gather in Bob's shop for a bull session 
have been signed up on a team and Bob 
sez that if they are gonna use his shop for 
sessions they will have to work for it. 
And knowing Bob, he wouldn't drive the 
guys out of the shop if the joint was on 

Wonder if Alma Bellera, from the Santa 
Cruz Handgun Club, managed to keep all 
her shots on her own target this time. Last 
month she put a couple of dillies on John 
Groh's target and he thought he put them 
on himself and wouldn't let them take 'em 
away. (Two nice fat lO's, too.) Which 
reminds me of the time on the SF range 
when Emmett Jones and Norman Adair 
were shooting side by side and Emmett 
put a 10 on Norm's target by mistake. 
Norm told Emmett not to worry and so 
saying he put a 10 on Emmett's target! 
And that's not only good shooting but 
a real Boy Scout deed for the day. 
Hey Ray, What.' 

I find a note here in my book that reads 
"Ray Bennett, Sacramento, 15 for 5." 
Can't figure out wot the heck that means. 
I know he wasn't selling dollar bills at 
that rate and to make things worse I don't 
remember who Ray is. 

And was Bill Thompson hopping mad .'

If sumpin', the firing pin busts, leaving 
him high and ver)' dry. So Hank Cross- 
licld gives him the horselaff and lo and 
behold the Lord punished Hank by having 
his gun jam four times in the timed firing. 
Ellis Renh is having troubles these days, 
too. Not too many months ago he brought 
his son, Ron, over to see the matches and 
the lad got quite a kick out of shooting 
and asked Pop to show him the know how. 
Pop obliged the lad and is now worrj'ing 
because the boy is gradually creeping up 
in his scores while the old man is standing 
still. 

Gosh, here's another puzzler in my 
notes. I have a Lockhaven number (no 
gents you don't get it) written in large 
figures so I wouldn't miss it but darned 
if I know who she is. Or maybe it's some 
guy I owe a bill to. In that case I don't 
care about the number but if that's not 
the case — this is a shooting article come 
to think of it not a beauty contest. Oh, 
well. 

Blame The Dog 

Poor Louisa Bowen hand a heck of a 
time trying to get a good score and keep 
the ccKkel .•'burrs off her dog. First she 
would take a few shots, then a gander at 
the pooch and after each string she would 
grab the hound and start picking the burrs 
oflF'n his hide. This sport soon became 
monotonous so Louise finally solved the 
problem by putting the dog in the car and 
locking the doors. Then she worried for 
fear the dog would be lonesome and from 
then on her scores fell from bad to worse. 

The SF Police Revolver Club held its 
first shoot of the season on Father's Day 
at the SF Range with a few brave shooters 
on the lines. There will be four shoots and 
a liinncr in November to crown the win- 
ners. Sunday's winners were Ted Shroth, 
O. L. Jarman, myself and Karl Schau- 
gaard. Next match in August. 

To set down all the various match win- 
ners at the Oakland shoot would rcc]uire 
considerable space because there were 13 
individual matches plus A aggregate win- 
ners in the .4^, .22 and center-fire matches 
and a grand aggregate individual matih. 
Then there were three team matches, that 
is, one for each caliber which team match 
scores are the total individual scores of 
each team member shooting in the .4^, .22

WATCH OUT FOR YOUR HUBCAPS 



Within the next two or three days you 
may become the victim of a hubcap thief. 

Hubcaps, these increasingly spectacular 
and increasingly expensive adornments on 
the wheels of the modern motor car, are 
becoming more and more the thief's de- 
light. In the first place, they're easy to 
Steal. Just a flip of the wrist and they're 
off. And in the second place, once they're 
off and away, there's usually no way of 
identifying them. 

The market for these shiny items is in- 
creasing, too, according to the National 
Automobile Theft Bureau of San Fran- 
cisco. The hot rod and jalopy set are al- 
ways on the lookout for some big discs to 
brighten up their latest job, says the Bu- 
reau. And there's always the eager thief, 
not a jalopy fan himself, who will add to 
his income by stealing hubcaps, passing 
them off to fences or to unsuspecting parts 
dealers or garages for resale. 

Even if you yourself don't become the 
victim of a hubcap thief, in the long run 
his activity is going to touch your pocket- 
book. As more and more of these expen- 
sive caps disappear, the growing losses are 
going to show themselves in the growing 
size of the premiums that you will be 
asked to pay for your comprehensive auto- 
" mobile insurance.

CompUmenfs of a 
FRIEND 



the hubcap thief ? Knowing that an identi- 
fiable hubcap is one that will be less likely 
to be stolen, and more likely to be recov- 
ered if stolen, police authorities and in- 
surance men in Salt Lake City have been 
urging automobile dealers in that city to 
use an electric, vibrator-type pencil to 
engrave identifying marks, such as motor 
numbers or license numbers, on their cus- 
tomer's hubcaps. In a large city by the San 
Francisco Bay, police authorities are pro- 
posing the passage of an ordinance that 
will make it compulsory for local automo- 
bile dealers to cut some sort of identifying 
marks, probably the last five digits of the 
motor number, in the hubcaps of their

And what can you yourself do.' As a 
member of a local service organization or 
club, you might propose that some such 
identification program be carried out in co- 
operation with authorities on a community 
or neighborhood level. 

By working together, motorists through- 
out the country can do much to put an end 
to the costly capers of the hubcap thief.

FAMED RELICS 

A section of the tree in which Kit Car- 
son carved his name back in the middle of 
the nineteenth century, broken bits of 
wagons and rusted guns used by members 
of the ill-fated Donner Party on their way 
to and through the Sierra Nevada Moun- 
tains, a rusted pick head among the mines 
in the days of Forty-nine, these are just a 
few of the many interesting relics of old 
California that the tourist will find in Sut- 
ter's Fort at Twenty-sixth and K Streets in 
Sacramento. 

The original Sutter's Fort, according to 
the National Automobile Club, was started 
around 1839 and the outside walks were 
completed in 1844. After about a decade 
in which it sened as a center of economic, 
political, and social life in the area, its 
ownership changed hands and it began to 
fall into decay. In 1891, however, the state 
saw fit to take it over and restore it to its 
original condition, using to do this the 
very adobe bricks that had been made by 
the Indians, and supplementing these with 
bricks made as the original bricks had 
been made, with clay taken from around 
the fort itself. 

Typical of the many interesting rooms 
that stand restored today much as they 
were in the beginning is the one in Sut- 
ter's quarters in which James W. Marshall 
showed Sutter the first few nug.cets of 
gold taken from the mill race. The entire 
room and its fittings are as close to what 
they must have been on that eventful day 
as it is humanly possible to make them. 
The scene itself is dramatically depicted 
by two life size figures and on looking 
through the door one sees Sutter examin- 
ing the gold that was to work his ruin. 

Other reactions to this discovery of gold 
are to be found in other parts of the fort. 
In the large room that once was the dis- 
tillery a sheet from a newspaper of the day 
carries at the bottom of a center column 
a few dry sentences to the cflFcct that gold 
had been discovered on the American 
River, that this proved that the state had 
much mineral wealth, and that the discov- 
ery should probably prove of interest to 
scientifically minded prospectors! 

But the whole fort is filled with inter- 
esting and enlightening items that make .i 
visit to it very much worth a tourists time 

COOLING SYSTEM 

Although you don't sec it. the tooling 
system of your automobile gradually loses 
its efficiency as rust and stale form in the 
water jackets and radiator. It's a good idea 
to have the system drained and flushed at 
least once a year, says the California State 
Automobile Association. Be sure to add a 
rust inhibitor when you refill the radiator 
as this greatly reduces corrosion and rust.

How^s Your Temper When Drivins 



Page 67 



In their untirmg effort to find a common 
denominator in the causes of automobile 
accidents, safety experts have come up with 
some weighty ideas during the past two 
or three years. The latest of these ideas, 
according to the National Automobile 
Club, is that behind most of these battered 
fenders and ripped radiators you will find 
some little temper tantrum, some little 
emotional disturbance on the part of the 
driver. 

You know how it is. There are days 
when you just seem to get up on the wrong 
side of the bed and from then on in every- 
thing goes wrong. You nick yourself with 
your razor. You spill some hot coffee right 
into your lap. When you get out on the

over backs his car out like a wild man and 
forces you half into the gutter. And then 
you're off! You grip the steering wheel 
with a fierce determination to show the rest 
of the world that you can't be stepped on, 
that if there's any pushing around to be 
done, you're the guy who can do it. So you 
slam your car around wildly, careen around 
blind corners, and hasten to your rendez-

Assuming that this is the problem, what 
can we do about it.' Those of us who are 
saintly and serene have nothing to worry 
about. We just go on our way being saintly

not quite saintly and serene, are obliged to 
take another approach. We must do what 
we can to avoid such emotional disturb-

must do what we can to keep them under

POLICE CALLS 

Intercepting and using police radio calls 
for personal benefit, as practiced by some 
towing companies, is a violation of the 
Federal Communications Act and may sub- 
ject the violator to heavy fines and im- 
prisonment, warns the California State 
Automobile Association. 

The AAA motorists' organization points 
out that a recent trial in a Federal District 
Court at Baltimore culminated in a convic- 
tion and S2,'>00 fine imposed on two oper- 
ators of a towing service for conspiracy to 
violate and for violation of Section 605 of 
the Communications Act. 

The government's attorney prosecuting 
the case indicated that the outcome of this 
trial might help to end a practice common 
in many large American cities. 

Section 605 of the Communications Act 
prohibits any person from intercepting and 
using for his own gain any radio communi- 
cations, other than those of broadcast sta- 
tions and amateur stations. The violation 
of this section is a criminal offense which 
may subject a violator, upon conviction, to 
a fine of not more than $10,000 and im- 
prisonment for a term not exceeding one 
year or both. These penalties can apply 
to each count of an indictment.

Thus, in the Baltimore case, each de- 
fendant could have been fined $70,000 if 
found guilty on all of the seven counts of 
the indictment under which they were 
tried. 

The investigation and prosecution of the 
towing firm was touched off after city po- 
lice and FBI investigators noted two trucks 
operated by the owners were persistently 
turning up at the scene of automobile acci- 
dents a few minutes after such traffic mis- 
haps were reported on the police radio net- 
work, the CSAA said.

THAT COP ON THE CORNER! 



At Our House" is a syndicated column 
which is carried in national Catholic news- 
paper chains and in a number of diocesan 
newspapers. The current column, written 
by Mary Tinley Daly, and dealing with 
the subject "The Cop on the Corner," has 
been released to the Police and Peace 
Officers' Journal. We are happy to 
print it since it sure reflects our editorial 
viewpoint. Here's the story: 

We find a ticket on our o^'e^time parked 
car . . . 

We hear a shrill whistle and are told, 
"Can't make a left turn here, lady " . . . 

A wailing sirened motorcycle draws up 
beside us and we're accosted with the 
"Where's - the - fire - let's - see - your - permit " 
routine . . . 

A uniformed officer stands at the door: 
"This your dog?" pointing to our little 
cocker. "Can't let an unleashed animal 
lun around." 

At such times, we're inclined to seethe 
and simmer, with under-the-breath com- 
ments of resentment toward THE LAW 
that keeps us from exercising our "free- 
dom. " 

Irrational ? Certainly, and we know it. 
That's what burns us — that we're called 
to face up to being wrong, actually 
encroaching on the freedom of others. So 
we vent our wrath on the policeman who 
is doing the duty we're paying him to do. 
We Seek Help 

On the other side of the picture: 

We hear a noise and are such there's a 
prowler. A call to the precinct has a squad 

ir at our home in a matter of minutes . . . 

We drop our children off at the corner 
'near school and that big blue-uniformed 
figure is standing there — in rain, hail, 
snow, blazing sun — and sees that they get 
safely across a busy intersection . . . 

We ask that the precinct "make a 
check" on our house when we're away on 



CALIFORNIA LEADS! 

A 7.2 per cent increase in motor vehicle registrations in the Unitel St.i^cs 
during 1955 lifted the total to 62,760,395, according to reports of st.-.:c 
agencies to the U. S. Bureau of Public Roads. 

This is a gain of 4,197,145 vehicles over 1954 and represents the largest 
increase since 1950. Registrations are now more than double the 1945 figure. 
The 1955 total included 52,173,234 passenger cars, 10,331,912 trucks, and 
255,249 buses. 

California leads with over 6 million motor vehicles and six other states 
exceeded 3 million — Illinois, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and 
Texas. These seven states have more than 45 per cent of all motor vehicle 
registrations. 

Florida registrations again showed the greatest rate of increase — 14.8 per 
cent, followed by Alabama, North Carolina, and Delaware. Generally speak- 
ing the largest gains occurred in the southern and western states and the 
smallest in New England and a group of states in the midwest. 

The 1955 registrations showed that 740,052 vehicles were publicly owned. 



vacation, and neighbors report that the 
police have been around time after time 
to see that windows and doors are securely 
locked — even pick up the throw-away ads 
that would give evidence of our absence. 

We read that these guardians of the law 
have apprehended a character who has 
been menacing the localit)'. 

He's Dedicated 

Lets take a look at one of these "boys " 
in blue." He's young when he starts on the 
force. He's healthy (so clean-living that a 
policeman's blood is taken without ques- 
tion in an emergenqO- And 10-to-l he is 
a "dedicated " person — as dedicated to his 
profession as is a Religious to the higher 
calling. He knows that he will never amass 
great wealth, will probably never achieve 
power and influence. And, in many places, 
he cannot even get insurance because of 
the hazards of his occupation. But he is 
doing a man-sized job. 

He must become chameleon-like in his 
sleeping habits. A private has a different 



shift every week; an officer, every two 
weeks. Either one is tough. First, he's on 
the midnight to 8 a. m. (means reporting 
in at 11 p. m.). So, he has to get used to 
sleeping from 9 a. m. until 5 in the after- 
noon for a week. Then, when he is on the 
8 a. m. to 4 p. m. shift he lives more or 
less like his neighbors, with evening hours 
for his family. The following week, he 
works from 4 p. m. to midnight. 

Both Mr. Copper and his family have to 
adjust to this shifting schedule. They do. 
But, as one young policeman told us, 
""You >teier get used to it !" 

Variety of Duty 

And those eight hours on duty! They 
may bring forth nothing but a routine 
check of a neighborhood. Perhaps, a warn- 
ing for a party that is disturbing the peace.

THREE TIME WINNAH! That's Chief Frank Kelly of the San Rafael Police Department. The Chief is seen in the center of the front row 
j io this photograph. He was elected head of the department in 1943 and has been re-elected for three successive terms. Formerly a member of 
I the California Highway Patrol and also formerly Marin County undersheriif, Frank Kelly attended and graduated from the FBI national acad- 
I emy. These qualifications have had much to do with making his Marin County law enforcement agency an outstanding one. Its members in-

CRIME ON INCREASE IN THE U. S. 



FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover has an- 
I, nounced that an estimated 2,262,450 
major crimes — one each 13.9 seconds — 
1 1 were committed in the United States last 
j' year. Although 0.2 per cent less than the 
( crime total in 1954, this figure is the sec- 
1 end highest in the history of recorded 
1 crime statistics and makes 1955 the fourth 
j consecutive year in which more than two 
million major offenses have been esti- 
mated. 

For the nation as a whole, felonious 
homicide, rape, larceny and auto theft in- 
creased, while decreases were recorded in 
crimes of robbery, aggravated assault and 
burglary. Although urban crime decreased 



0.8 per cent, negligent manslaughter, rape, 
larceny and auto theft increased in cities 
last year. There was a 1.8 per cent increase 
in major offenses in rural areas during 
195 5. All categories of rural crime except 
robbery, aggravated assault and burglary 
showed increases over 1954. 

Mr. Hoover noted that 1955 witnessed 
one serious offense for every 73 persons in 
the United States and that a murder, man- 
slaughter, rape or assault to kill occurred 
every 4.2 minutes. 

The FBI Director emphasized the prom- 
inent role of juveniles in the American 
crime problem. "Of the arrests for major 
crimes in 1,477 cities last year, 42.3 per 



cent involved persons less than 18 years of 
age, and nearly half of this arrested group 
consisted of children who were under 15," 
he said. "Juvenile participation in crimes 
against property is particularly alarming. 
Reports from the 1,477 cities show that 
youngsters under 18 years of age were in- 
volved in 21.4 per cent of the robbery 
arrests, 46.9 per cent of the larceny arrests, 
52.7 per cent of burglary arrests and 62.2 
per cent of the arrests for auto thefts." 

Theodore Roosevelt was the first presi- 
dent to learn to drive an automobile, says 
the California State Automobile Associ- 
ation.

GOSSIP OF THE PISTOL RANGES 



j Ross DUNNK,/ 



And did you become one ol those frozen 
shooters that ventured out on the hnc 
Sunday, July 1. 19*>6 at the Oakland 
matihcs? Well, some 22S brave lads and 
lassies gathered at the monthly clam bake 
and nearly froze their fannies off for their 
efforts. As for myself and the Mrs., we 
stood the chill until after our picnic lunch. 
Then we tcx)k off for warmer parts a bit 
further south and finally found warmth at 
the Pleasanton Fair — and a ri^ht good 
fair it was- -where we not only found the 
un but a lot of fun at the same time. 
There was a cartcwnist who, for two bucks 
a throw, characterized the sitter and I spent 
lots of time watching him and spent two 
bucks, tcx). Wot a picture for a comic val- 
entine or something to scare the kids into 
going to bed. (Editors note: We repro- 
duce the cartoon herein.) 

The shooting (returning now to Oak- 
land) was just as spirited as ever with 
Captain EJcximhowcr of the California 
Highway Patrol taking the top aggregate 
prize for the day with Bill Thomas, also 
of the Highway Patrol, just one point be- 
hind and Karl Schaugaard of the SF 
Police Team two points to the rear. In

Reno matches but unfortunately didn't 
make the trip so missed a lot of news for 
the Ixjys this time but will sec what dotx-

the matches, Carl came back to the scoring

DEATH STALKS MOTORIST— Ihat was the heading ot an editorial run by the Joirnal in the June issue. Safety first has been the slo- 
gan of police departments and safety councils for many years. Yet the death toll mounts nation-wide and the careful driver is being penal- 
ized by the selfish one. Meantime police department budgets grow by leaps and bounds as departments everywhere strive to supply manpower 
to handle the ever-increasing flow of motor vehicles and safety devices and signals to control the eager-beaver motorist. The taxpayer foots 
the bill. The Journal goes along with the National Safety Council in urging drivers to be as courteous when behind the wheel as they art 
in their homes or place of business. The Journal likewise supports the contention that drivers' licenses should be given only to persons 
physically, emotionally and mentally qualified to drive in present-day traffic. 

ARE you RISKING LIVES TOO ? 



It's about time our feeling for moral law 
was applied to motoring. 

Most people brought up in a modern 
community in our modern society manage 
to acquire a fairly distinct feeling for moral 
law. By the constant guidance of parents, 
teachers, officers of their church, and asso- 
ciation with their friends, by the reading 
of papers and books, they come to know 
that it is not right to steal, to hurt or maim 
someone, to kill, and they go through their 
lives with a constant awareness of what is 
wrong and what is right in their conduct 
'with their fellow men. With this aware-'' 
ness, the vast majority of us don't need a 
policeman continually at our elbows to 
keep us from stealing, maiming, or killing. 

Yet somehow or other, points out the 
National Automobile Club, when it comes^ 
to the matter of driving, all too many of us 
seem to lose all such feeling for the moral 



law. When we get behind the wheel of a 
car we seem to step out from behind our 
obligations to ourselves and to our fellows, 
step into a realm of moral anarchy, and 
proceed to drive in a way that endangers 
our own lives and the lives of others. We 
speed and ^^'eave, cut across, dash through 
blind intersections at breakneck pace; pass 
when approaching a curve or the crest of a 
hill; come darting out from the curb with- 
out taking the slightest interest in what cars 
may be coming up from behind. Yet we 
know that any of these practices can end 
in smashed cars, bruised or maimed bodies, 
or brutally murdered men, women, or chil- 
dren. 

With 2,158,000 injuries and 37,800 
deaths on our streets and highways last 
year, it's about time v/e brought an in- 
creased awareness of the moral law to bear 
in the field of our drf\ in.<T. The next time 



you get behind the wheel of your car, re- 
solve to drive in such a way that there will 
be no chance of your smashing another 
man's car, breaking his body, taking his 
life. The next time you get behind the 
wheel of your car, feel strongly about the 
moral law.

HERE'S PROGRESS 

A new state-wide private line highway 
teletype system for the Division of High- 
ways is being installed to replace the pres- 
ent teletype system used by the division. 
State Highway Engineer George T. Mc- 
Coy announced. Installation started on 
May 21. It is anticipated the new teletype 
system will corrert present operating prob- 
lems as well as greatly increase the effi- 
ciency of the system. 

The new system is known as a Tele- 
typewriter Automatic Dispatch System 
(TADS) and transmits automatically by 
tape at 60 words per minute. The teletype 
operator merely prepares a message in tape 
form, places the tape in the teletype trans- 
mitter, and the machine does the rest. 

Transmitters are automatically started 
in any predetermined sequence, eliminat- 
ing the need for continuous watching by 
the operator for an opportunity to seize 
the line. Several transmissions can be 
made from one continuous tape so that the 
tape may contain messages to several dif- 
ferent points, and the equipment will 
automatically route them to the proper 
destinations. The teletypes are started and 
stopped and stations selected by the trans- 
mission of single letters inserted on the 
tape. Contention between stations is en- 
tirely eliminated, and the system operates 
with a maximum of speed and the mini- 
mum of attention on the part of the 
operator. 

The system will be comprised of a north 
and south circuit as is presently used. Typ- 
ing reperforators in Sacramento adminis- 
tration will automatically make tape for 
cross transmissions between circuits. In ad- 
dition, Sacramento Communications will 
have automatic reperforating interceptors 
on each circuit. Should any tape be acci- 
dentally misdirected, the message will be 
automatically intercepted on a tape, thus 
preventing a message from becoming lost 
The tape will then be directed to the 
proper station

d.iughter, Mrs. Gloria Norton. The Captain won the National Trophy match for pistol shooting at the recent San Diego meet. Gloria broke

huge leather medal for my stupidity. I 
still have the medal in with my others and 
it's one of my real prizes. Wot a feeling 
when you just ain't got no powder in the 
shells ! ! 

Received notice that two of our regulars 
have made the California State Pistol 
Team— Milt Klipfel of the State High- 
way Patrol and Ted Elton of the U. S. 
Navy. This mythical team takes the 12 
top shooters from the California Rifle & 
Pistol Association match and places the 
first ten on the team. The eleventh man 
is designated as Captain and the twelfth 
is designated as team coach. High 12 out 
of the shooters from all over the state isn't 
an easy task to get over. 

Phil Atkinson, of the Sacramento team, 
having troubles like all the rest of us 
but his claim is that he is getting too old. 
Phil is close to 36 now and thinks pistol 
'shooting is too ruff so he goes out and 
buys himself a nice bow and arrow outfit. 
Phil was doing all right for a while — that 
is, until he shot himself in the leg with one 
of the arrows and had to call it quits. I've 
seen men shoot themselves in the legs, 
arms and other vulnerable spots with the 
handgun but never had the pleasure of 



seeing Phil do the trick with a bow and 
arrow. I always thought that that stunt 
could only be performed by Sitting Bull 
or some other worthy redskin. Phil is now 
taking up gardening. Look out, Phil, those 
snails might bite yuh ! 

For Shami- Bill 

Boy, oh boy, but was Bill Markel 
thrown into a troublous fit Sunday when 
he looked into his shooting kit and found 
no bullets (how about a leather medal for 
that one?) Bill, as you know, is the owner, 
salesman, manufacturer, janitor and all 
around handy man in the MarMur bullet 
outfit and to have to borrow in order to 
shoot — well besides a decidedlly red face 
and injured pride — it was more than Bill 
could stand. Trying to explain between 
tears and deep sobs it was most pitiful to 
see him so broken up and still insists he 
would have done a lot better but he just 
wasn't used to the shells he borrowed. 

Then comes the wail from the shooters 
that the trees shading the scoring tables 
should be trimmed— ON THE BOT- 
TOM ! It seems the branches are growing 
down and have a tendency to knock off 
the players' hats and muss their hair. All 
bald headed men have been complaining 
thata way for months. 

Elwood Johnson his been sent to the 



Guided Missile school in Alabama for a 
two months course in these destroyers. 
El shoots on the Olympic Club Team and 
in all probability will be able to apply 
some of his new found technique to his 
fellow team-mates — only in a smaller way. 

Been To Germany 
Master Sgt. Ferguson was at his first 
shoot with the Oakland gang and enjoyed 
every bit of the day. Fergy just got back 
from Germany where he was in charge of 
organizing shooting clubs all over that 
country. The sergeant has a good tale to

ther, Ted, along with him Sunday to in- 
itiate him in the ways of pistol shcxiting

SAFETY AWARDS 

The International Association of Chiefs 

oi Police has cited eight states and 79 

cities for their police traffic supervision 

, achievement in 1955. Judges were Com- 

! missioner B. R. Caldwell, California High- 

I way Patrol; Chief C. F. Hansson of Dal- 

i, las, Texas, and Chief Bruce Weatherly of 

I ' Madison, Wisconsin. 

I Four states and 39 cities will receive 

outstanding achievement awards and four 

states and 40 cities will get certificates of 

achievement. 

California won the Big States Outstand- 
ing Achievement Award. 

Outstanding achievement awards are 
based on performance evaluations of 90 
per cent or higher for states and 85 per 
cent or higher for cities, as rated in the 
police traffic supervision section of the 
Annual Inventory of Traffic Safety Activi- 
ties. 

Certificates of achievement are given on 
: the basis of 85 to 90 per cent performance 
evaluations for states and on 80 to 85 per 
cent for cities. 

The Annual Inventory of Traffic Safety 
Activities is administered by the National 
Safety Council. The police traffic section 
of the Inventory is under the policy super- 
Vision of the International Association of 
Chiefs of Police. 

Among California cities winning awards 
were: 

Los Angeles, in the million or more 
population class, won the Outstanding 
Achievement Award. 

San Diego, 300,000 to 500,000 popu- 
lation, the Outstanding Achievement 
Award. 

Pasadena, classified as having a popula- 
tion between 100,000 and 200,000, also 
was given the Outstanding Achievement 
Award. 

Fresno, in the same classification, re- 
ceived the same award. 

Berkeley, Glendale, San Jose and Sacra- 
mento, all were honored in the 100,000 to 
200,000 class. 

Stockton, Burbank and Inglewood won 
in the group having 50,000 to 100,000 
population. 

Palo Alto and Hayward cashed in for 
cities of 25,000 to 50,000 while the Judges 
gave the nod to Hanford, Ventura, Lodi 
and Chico for cities of 10,000 to 25,000 
population.

WOW AND HOLY HOW!— The young lady imitating the Statue of Liberty (although she's

KEEP LEVEL HEAD 

Keep a level head on the highway and 
you'll enjoy a longer life. 

The Public Safety Department of the 
National Automobile Club points out that 
all too many motorists are inclined to be 
on the temperamental side, to be a little 
too emotionally flighty. Somehow or other 
they cant be crossed up in the slightest 
without making some kind of emotional 
show about it. They take every little mis- 
take of that other driver as some sort of 
personal injury, some sort of personal in- 
sult. If someone crowds them a little, they 
leap into a fit of anger and start banging 
their cars around on the road. If someone 
passes them with a little too much zip, 
they take it as an insulting challenge to a 
race and immediately set out to "show that 
other guy" that they can drive as franti- 
cally as anyone on the road. 

Such temper tantrums on the highway 
are very childish. They are also very dan- 
gerous. Don't indulge in such tantrum-. 
Keep calm and objective in every drivins; 
situation. Keep a level head and you'll 
enjoy a longer life.

HELP FROM THE AIR! 

In a Midwestern state a lady motorist 
was sweating over the changing of a tire. 
Car after car zipped by her on the high- 
way and nary a motorist gave her a look 
or a thought. 

Then chivalry, points out the National 
Automobile Club, good old - fashioned 
chivalry, descended from on high. Out of 
the wild blue yonder a tiny plane descend- 
ed in a field, the pilot climbed out, walked 
over to the road, changed the lady's tire 
for her, returned to his plane, and then 
roared off again into the wild blue yonder.

TEENAGERS' RECORD 

Teen-age drivers are striking back at the 
time-worn cliche that brands them as dan- 
gerous drivers. 

The National Teen-Age Road-e-o, a 
number one traffic safety program geared to 
test the driving skills of the teen-agers and 
test his knowledge of traffic rules and regu- 
lations, has involved over one million teen- 
agers in the last five years. 

The Teen-Age Road-e-o gives an oppor- 
tunity to the majority of the nation's non- 
professional teen-age drivers a chance to 
show their willingness to become mature, 
responsible drivers. 

In more that 2,000 Junior Chamber of 
Commerce communities, Jaycees have 
worked with some 300,000 teen-agers this 
year. Beginning on a local level teen-agers 
are graded after taking a written examina- 
tion and driving through a skill course. 
Each community then sends their first place 
winner to their state Jaycee Road-e-o. On 
the state level, a road check is added to a 
more diftitTilt written examination and skill 
course test. 

The top contestant from each state is 
then flown to Washington, D. C. with all 
expenses paid for four days August 6-9, to 
participate in the National Teen-Age Road- 
e-o Finals. 

The national finalists must go through 
more thorough examinations which include 
personality interviews, psychophysical test- 
ing, aptitude checks as well as a more diffi- 
cult road check, written examination and 
skill course test. Three scholarships total- 
ing $3,000 are then awarded to the top 
three winners. 

Traffic safety • minded organizations 
which co-sponsor the Teen-Age Road-e-o 
are the Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, 
American Trucking Associations, Inc., and 
Chrysler Corporation.

CRIME -CAUSE AND PREVENTION 



Department of Police, Warren, Ohio 

This subject has many aspects and many 
points of view. I wish to discuss it from 
the policeman's angle and give you the 
facts based on experience and observation 
in cases investigated. 

Crime prevention begins and ends with 
: Education itself — education in the home, 
in the church, in the schools. It extends 
even further into business and professional 
•life, prison life, pardon and probation sys- 
tems. 

First, let's consider the home life. In 
my early youth a good strong wooden pad- 
dle was a very effective means of both 
crime prevention and lie detection! Ser- 
iously, the home life in early childhood 
forms the pattern of the child's character 
and actions. The example set by parents, 
their personal conduct and habits, are 
highly influential and a deciding factor 
for good or bad. The training, discipline 
and respect instilled in the adolescent will 
be a deciding and certainly a highly im- 
pressive factor in determining whether 
maturity will reveal a law-abiding, re- 
spected member of the community, a hu- 
man derelict, or a criminal. 

Parents Drunk 

How can a boy or a girl be expected to 
grow into a respectable man or woman 
who sees their parents come home drunk 
two or three nights a week or sees them 
skting at home drinking until they are 
unable to retire without assistance; who, 
because the condition does exist, is forced 
to go to bed hungry or to school without

proper clothes; or who, because of the 
character and reputation of the parents, 
is spurned by other children; or who is 
subjected to constant bickering, arguing 
or nagging, forced on occasion to undergo 
unnecessary abuse; or who is deprived of 
the normal love and companionship which 
should be a natural, prevailing factor in 
home life? 

I heartily agree with J. Edgar Hoover's 
statement that "Crime prevention begins 
in the high chair, not the electric chair." 
I believe that early in the child's life is 
the time to begin the crime prevention 
program by teaching the difference be- 
tween right and wrong; respect for the 
property and rights of others; and the art 
of living together peacefully and harmo- 
niously. Disciplinary and corrective meas-

ures should be taken whenever necessary. 
Sparing the rod and spoiling the child is 
a grave mistake. 

Kids Unattended 
Far too often both parents go out into 
business, industry or professional life, 
leaving the children unsupervised and un- 
attended during the entire working day. 
Left to shift for themselves, these young- 
sters go out to seek the companionship 
they do not find at home and in too many 
instances fall in with the wrong kind of

company. Eventually they find themselves 
coming to the attention of a law enforce- 
ment agency. 

Another very grave contributing factor 
is the failure of many parents to accept 
the responsibility of caring for their chil- 
dren. It is a growing tendency to shift 
the responsibility to public service and 
scxial agencies for providing amusement 
and entertainment to use up the natural, 
stored-up energies of the children. It 
'cems to be so much easier to send them 
(iff to some public playground or park 
to be watched over by supervisors on the 
public payroll. And so another source of 
juvenile delinquency is opened to them. 

Now, let's consider the church and the 
part it plays in building citizens and pre- 
venting crime. It is charged with the re- 
sponsibility of providing spiritual train- 
ing and education; and insofar as the in- 
dividual church congregation is concerned, 
It does a good job. It has been said, "Show 
me a boy who attends church regularly and 
111 show you a boy who is seldom in 
trouble." This is perfectly true, but what 
about the larger percentage of community 
youth who seldom see the inside of a 
church .' This, of course, is brought about 
by shifting population, people new to a 
community, a reluctance to go out and get 
accjuaintecl, a failure to project themselves 
into active community life. 

HiLP Of Church 

It is my conviction that ministerial asso- 
ciations, adult and youth church organi- 
zations should have an established, unified 
plan of contacting new residents — it not 
for the sake of the adults, then for the 
sake of the children — to determine not 
what church they prefer but whether or not 
'hey are mtcrcsted in any church and make 
an effort to channel them into a church. 
And what about church parlors which 
generally lie idle week after week except 
for an occasional Ladies Aid Tea? Why 
shouldn t they be utilized for youth ac- 
tivities and youth social clubs to reach 
out and attempt to influence that boy or 
girl who may have made a mistake.' They 
would not get them all. That is an estab- 
lished certainty. But they would get some 
(if them, and even if the numlxr were 
<m.\\\ it would Ix; a job well done. 

Then let s IcKik at the sch(X)l and its part

I say here that in this respect the home, 
the church and the schcxjl are all tied to- 
gether. School is the preparation for life 
ahead, not only learning the know-how 
of earning a living, of making homes, 
building bridges and skyscrapers, and all 
the other facts of modern science and in- 
dustry, but of learning to live together, 
to respect the rights and privileges of 
others, of becoming gcx)d law-abiding 
citizens. 

Do you know there was a time when 
school teachers were recjuired to make a 
given number of home calls each month — 
not an occasioiitil visit when a student gets 
too far out of line or perhaps needs a little 
additional discipline, but to get acquainted 
with the parents and to talk over children's 
problems with the parents. In this modern 
age I guess the P. T. O.'s and the P. T. 
A.'s take care of all that, and so that down- 
to-earth, personal contact between home 
and teacher is lost. 

Lax In Discipline 

It is my personal observation that some 
of the schools are too lax in discipline. 
Some of the students are allowed to "get 
away " with too much. I'm thinking of 
an incident that occurred at the conclusion 
of a basketball game. As the students were 
going up the stairs, two boys were attempt- 
ing to feel a couple of girl's legs. One of 
the girls hit one of the boys on the head 
with a book and the boys told them they

would see them outside. They were wait-

continued their attempt to paw them, 
slapped them and kncxked them down, 
and even kicked them as they lay on the 
street. The incident was investigated and 
proper action taken. Naturally the inci 
dent came to the attention of the news- 
papers and after the story broke, I received 
a complaint from the principal of the 
sihcX)l protesting the unfavorable pub- 
licity his school had received over such 
a "minor incident " — and why didn t wc 
let the school handle its own affairs.^ I'm 
afraid my reply to that would not be tcx)

i i complimentary. I only narrate this to por- 
tray some of the laxity in proper discipline. 
If these instances are permitted to exist 
and flourish without punishment, what 
is going to be the attitude of these youths 
I as they grow up.-* Will they be community 
'.: assets or will they be continually in the 
hands of the law? 

Indicts Society 
I'mally, I would like to discuss the boy 
or girl who has made a mistake, those who 
have experienced the closing behind them 
of the door of some house of correction 
or penal institution. Here I must indict 
societ)' as a whole for its failure, neglect 
and condemnation of the youth who have 
made mistakes — failure in the home for 
proper training, guidance and counsel; 
failure of the school in exercising disci- 
pline and control; and failure of the 
church in reaching out a helping hand 
to them when they needed it most. 

How many times during the past year 
do you suppose the members and the clergy 
h.ne called at Police Headquarters to con- 
fer with youths who have violated the 
rules of society.' If there were any such 
calls I have no knowledge of them. When 
the jail doors close upon them, they are 
generally without spiritual counsel or 
guidance. 

The parole and probation systems also 

tome into focus for failing to determine 

that a parolee or probationary is going to 

h.ue a place in societ)' upon release or 

whether he becomes a repeating taxpayers' 

burden. Idleness breeds mischief. Before a 

person is released and returned to society 

arrangements should be made to provide 

that person with employment. If they 

', are released on their own they roam the 

• ; streets. If they are not successful in secur- 

^ , ing employment and they are spurned by 

<' ■ society they naturally revert to crime. That, 

I ; gentlement, is one of the major causes of 

.' i repeaters. 

Can't Get Work 
Not so long ago a young man came into 
I my office. He stated very frankly that he 
; was a parolee from an industrial school. 
1 He had attempted to secure employment 
L but because of his record could not get 
I a job. He needed help. After the interview 
I his case was referred to the Detective 
Bureau because it has contact with all the 
• employing agencies. Then it was dis- 
covered that he was not quite 18 years of 
' age and for that reason could not get a 
I ;|)ob in industry. However, his birthday 
was only a few days away and he could 
wait that long. Upon reaching the employ- 
,ment age he again renewed his applica- 
tion at several major employment firms. 
: Without success. Then he came back to 
the Detective Bureau. I took what infor- 
ijmation I needed and asked him to report 



back to my office the following morning. 
I later called a friend of mine and after 
hearing my case he agreed to arrange for 
the boy's employment. 

Now this is only one of the many such 
cases which come to our attention. Cases 
of helpless dejection. 

They have made mistakes, these young- 
sters. They have been caught and have 
paid their debt to society; and yet they 
are spurned by society. They are not 
wanted; there is no place for them. They 
were released by a parole board or placed 
on probation by a court of competent 
jurisdiction to make their place in society, 
a place which they find doesn't exist. And 
we say, it's up to them to prove them- 
selves. And I say to you, how are they to 
prove themselves if they can't have a 
chance to do it .' 

No Explanation 

Who are we to condemn boys when, 
but for the grace of God, we might have 
been in the same position they are in. 
Naturally and rightly the perpetrator of 
a crime is apprehended, arrested and pros- 
ecuted. However, many crimes, especially 
those committed by youths, are thought- 
less mistakes, a failure to stop and weigh 
the consequences, or associations with im- 
proper companions, or they are persons 
easily led or influenced. Many others com- 
mit infractions for which the perpetrators 
themselves have no explanation or excuse. 
This does not alter the fact that a crime 
has been committed and that the ends of 
justice must be served; but it is not justice 
to condemn them or banish them from 
society after the price has been paid. It is 
my conviction that if parole and proba- 
tionary authorities developed a system of 
occupational relief for these subjects there 
would be far less so-called repeaters. 

It seems ironic that such transgressors 
are forced to appeal to the police for assis- 
tance. It must take a lot ot ambitious de- 
termination and desire to impel them to 
appeal to us. In these cases I feel that they 
are an extraordinary good risk. There w//.r/ 
be a determination to become a good citi- 
zen; otherwise they would not appeal to 
us. 

I do not hold that all cases are going to 
be successful. I know that many will not 
make the grade. But for the one who 
doesn't, I believe there are !uo that will 
make it // they are not forced to revert to 
criminal ways. 

This crime prevention is a full time, 
around the clock project for the home, 
the church, the school, business, industry, 
and all social and related agencies. It's a 
job for all of societ)'. It's a challenge to 
you as well as the people who are engaged 
to administer it. , . ,

20 YEARS OLD 

The Traffic Institute of Northwestern 
University and the Traffic Division of the 
International Association of Chiefs of Po- 
lice, both of Evanston, 111., are 20 years 
old. 

Established as the Traffic Safety Insti- 
tute" and lACP "Safety Division' in 
April, 1936, the twin traffic organizations 
have ^rown from a combined staff of three 
persons to 50 full-time employees and 
nearly an equal number of part-time in- 
structors. From a modest police training 
program and consulting service to police 
departments, the Institute and lACP Traf- 
fic Division have expanded their program 
to include training for virtually all types 
of traffic personnel, traffic field assistance 
to city, county, and state governments, and 
extensive work in traffic publications, re- 
search, and development. 

Since 1936, the Traffic Institute of 
Northwestern University and the lACP 
Traffic Division have; 

1. Trained (or assisted in the training 
of) more than 15,000 key personnel with 
street and highway traffic responsibilities 
in courses, conferences, and seminars on 
the Evanston and Chicago campuses of 
Northwestern University and elsewhere in 
the U. S. 

2. Provided field service assistance to 
more than 125 city, county and state gov- 
ernments in such areas as police traffic su- 
pervision, traffic court and violations bur- 
eau operations, traffic engineering admin- 
istration, and traffic legislation. 

3. Published nearly a dozen major 
books and manuals and scores of unit pub- 
lications and other training aids. 

4. Provided leadership and staff assist- 
ance to national programs and national 
committees seeking to improve traffic safe- 
ty methods and procedures. 

5. Pioneered in traffic research and de- 
velopment work. 

A total of 20,753 persons were injured 
and 858 were killed in traffic accidents in 
the unincorporated areas of California 
during the hrst five months of this year, 
according to the National Automobile 
Club. This represents an increase of 5. 93 
per cent and 8.60 per cent respectively 
over those injured and killed during the 
same period of 1955. 

When you're driving an automobile, 
the RIGHT WAY is far more important 
than the RIGHT-OF-WAY, cautions the 
California State Automobile Association. 
It's better to be safe than to risk your life 
insisting on your rights, 

California hunters bagged 2,571,500 
doves during the 1955 season, reports the 
National Automobile Club.

RECORD SALES IN STATE 



Paced by record -breaking automobile 
sales and sustained by near-full employ- 
ment, a large amount of new construction, 
and a high level of economic activity in 
general, third-cjuarter 1955 transactions 
subject to California's retail sales and use 
taxes rose to an all-time ijuarterly high of 
54,631,014.00, according to George R. 
Reilly, First District Member of the State 
Board of Ecjualization. Aggregate sales 
were 21.4 percent higher than those of the 
corresf>onding quarter of 1954 and 3-4 per- 
cent greater than the previous all-time rec- 
ord level set in the second quarter of 1955. 

Taxes on self-assessed third-quarter sales 
amounted to $138,930,420 and brought 
the self-assessed tax revenue for the first 
nine months of 1955 to $390,324,990. The 
yield from 1955 self- and board-assessed 
sales will reach a record high that could 
hit the $550,000,000 level when returns 
arc in for the final quarter of the year. 

Third-quarter sales of establishments 
popularity regarded as retail outlets rose 
to an all-time high of 53,263,000,000, a 
fii^rc more than 22 percent above the total 
for the corresponding quarter of 1954 and 
6 percent above the record-breaking Christ- 
mas-quarter sales of 1954. Personal service 
cstablislimcnts posted a record $145,745,- 
000 of taxable transactions, a figure nearly 
18 percent over the volume of the third 
quartjr of 1954. Reported taxable sales or

purchases of manufacturers, wholesalers, 
contractors, and miscellaneous outlets also 
climbed to a new peak of $1,221,466,000 
to record a 20 percent gain over 1954's 
figure. 

Sales of new car dealers surpassed the 
three-quarter billion dollar mark to exceed 
by 2 percent the record set in the preceding 
quarter and to record a 59 percent improve- 
ment over third-quarter 1954 taxable trans- 
actions. California spent another $105,- 
383,000 at used automobile lots and en- 
abled used car dealers to rc|X)rt a 36 per- 
cent gain in business. Total taxable sales 
of dealers in automobiles — new and used 
— approached $860,000,000. The taxable 
sales of automobile supplies, parts, and ac- 
cessories by automotive supplies and parts 
dealers, service stations, and garages ac- 
counted for another $17^,000,000 to bring 
the total taxable sales in the State for auto- 
mobiles and their maintenance in the third 
quarter of last year to $1,035,000,000.

HORN BLOWER! 

Many a motorist depends a great deal 
more on his horn than on his "horse sense" 
to _t;et him by in traffic. 

The National Automobile Club points 
i)ut that you've probably seen the type. 
Somehow or other he seems to feel that if 

I he blows that hofn loud enough and long 
enough and often enough, all will go well. 
When he finds himself caught in traffic that 
IS .1 little congested, he just starts to blow 
his horn. Whenever anyone interrupts his 
line of travel in the slightest, he leans on 
tti.it button. Whenever he's approaching an 
intersection, he makes no slow-down in his 
speed, makes no allowances for the cars 
th.it might be coming in the other direction, 
but just blasts the horn and then crashes on 
through. 

Don't drive so. It's always much better 
to use that horn sparingly and to use your 
br.ikes, your steering wheel, and your accel- 
er.itor more skillfully and more judiciously. 
Dim t depend on your horn. Depend on 
your "horse sense" to get you by in traffic.

THE POLICE PROFESSION 



(An editorial from Spring 3100, official publication of the New York City Police 
Department.) 

There has been much talk of making the policeman a professional man. Some 
old-timers laugh at this as fantasy. It can be done. But the simple fact is that the 
only one who can do it is the policeman himself. 

To make himself a professional he must believe in his job, be completely devoted 
to duty and have pride in his work. He must be honest, efficient and understanding. 
He must be willing to learn and to improve himself by study. Most of all he must 
win the confidence of the public. 

By winning that confidence, he gains public support and boosts the prestige 
of himself, his fellow officers and the entire Police Department. By doing this, he 
will not only raise police standards, he might even raise police salaries; for well- 
earned public confidence merits reward. 

The road to professionalism can be a rocky one. It can also be made easy by 
following the above markers and by developing the ability of not being content 
with just doing a pretty good job, but trying to make every job — the best! 

CALIFORNIA SECOND 

California sold 1,285,980 fishing licen- 
ses during the 1954-55 season to place 
second in the United States, reports the 
National Automobile Club. Minnesota 
placed first with 1,374,942 licenses sold. 

Meantime, sport fishermen and wild 
game hunters in the United States set a new 
record by purchasing 33,046,361 licenses 
during the fiscal year that ended June 30, 
1955. That was 392,162 more licenses than 
they purchased during the previous year.

RUSSIANS LAND 

In the early part of the nineteenth cen- 
tury, adventurers and voyagers from all 
over the world were sailing up and down 
the Pacific Coast of North America and 
eyeing the rich land with the thought of 
settlement and possible colonization in 
mind. 

Among these adventurers and voyagers 
was a group from faraway Russia. Under 
the leadership of Lieutenant KoskoflF they 
landed at Bodega Bay early in 1812 and, 
after hunting and fishing around this area 
for a while, moved northward to a point 
thirteen miles above the mouth of what is 
now the Russian River where they found 
a plateau by the side of the sea that struck 
them as being the perfect site for a settle- 
ment. Here they founded Fort Ross. 

The settlement was skillfully laid out. 
It had as its center a stockade of twelve- 
foot redwood poles that formed an enclo- 
sure of 300 feet square. An cxrtagonal 
blockhouse was built into each of two di- 
agonally opposite corners of this stcKkade 
and both the blockhouses and the stockade 
had embrasures through which mounted 
cannons could be fired. Inside this enclo- 
sure was a commandant's house, a chapel, 
officers' quarters, barracks, and store- 
houses. Outside the enclosure were a wind- 
mill, a tannery, granaries, and living cjuar- 
tcrs for Indians who had come with the 
Russians from Alaska or had gathered 
from the surrounding countryside. 

Life at Fort Ross was leisurely but pro- 
ductive, according to the National Auto- 
mobile Club. Crops and cattle were raised 
to supply food to the Russian camps and 
ships in the far north. Many types of 
gixids were manufactured for sale in near- 
by San Francisco and other towns. 

The Spanish government, however, and 
later the Mexican government, looked 
with displeasure upon the new settlement 
and saw the Russians as troublesome in- 
truders. As time went by the pressures 
they brought to bear, together with other 
(actors, led the Russians to decide to with- 
draw and in 1841 they sold their settle- 
ment to General John A. Sutter for $30,- 
000 and left for Alaska. 

Today l-t>rt Ross stands partly restored 
by the California State Park- Commission 
and motorists driving north of San Fran- 
lisco on State Route 1 can sec the old 
chapel, part of the stockade, and other 
fragments that stand on what was a thriv- 
mg outp*>st of an empire over a 100 years

POLICE PUBLIC RELATIONS 

By Lieut. D. M. "Douc," Davis 
Training Officer, San Bernardino Sheriflfs Office 



FOREWORD-This is by no means a detailed course in Public Relations. This covers only the basic fundamentals, hits only 
the high spots However, if an officer will study these suggestions thoroughly and give the subject much serious thought znd 
consideration, he will, in his daily tasks, find many places for application of the basic ideas advocated here. 

One of the most important facets of 
Law Enforcement work is Public Relations. 
Yet it remains, to this day, one of the 
least understood and least practiced phases 
of police work. We are far too often "Too 
close to the forest to see the trees." For 



' each our every daily contacts encompasses 
Public Relations. Good Public Relations 
is the keystone that keeps the arch of se- 
i curity from crumbling. Good public rela- 
i tions is that spirit of fellowship and mu- 
; tual respect that a wise administratior will 

filant and nurture in the hearts of his 
ellowmen. 
I The most important member of the pub- 
I lie relations family is departmental rela- 
i tions. If departmental relations are on a 
. high level, with a fine esprit de corps, 
I then your men are happy, and work better 

on their varied jobs. When on or off duty 

they should automatically and naturally 
I be salesmen of good will to all they chance 
1 to contact. By the actions of the individual, 
i the department is judged. 
' Public Relations is a very broad term 
I that includes all contact between indivi- 
I duals. It is that relationship of one to a 

body, it covers all contact or influence. 
, What we say on the phone, radio or in 
1 person, what we write and even our gen- 
; era! conduct while on or off duty are our 

means of influence. This is the basis upon 
; which opinions are formed, upon which 

»the public passes judgment. 
Sense Of Humor 
In order to attempt to practice good 
public relations every officer must be 
armed with a sense of humor and a bounti- 
ful supply of courtesy. It has been truly 
said that, "Courtesy is the only oil for the 
wheels of human contact that always re- 
tains its lubricating quality." The young 
officer just beginning in police work can 
never hope to attain the heights of pro- 
motion and advancement without having 
courtesy as the foremost of his attributes. 
The very essence of the police attitude 
should be courtesy and the will to serve. 
We are truly the "Servants of the people." 
Never once lose sight of that fact. One 
. ser\'es with dignity and respect, never as 
La lackey or common slave. We are free- 
[jl dom loving people in America, and justly 
proud of our freedom. We serve with 
courtesy, never should we act with servil- 
ity. We can be courteous and at the same 
I time be firm and fair. 



level, you can develop a public attitude 
along those lines favorable to the accom- 
plishment of your departmental purpose. 
Every man in the department should be 
ever striving towards that one great police 
purpose . . . that of keeping the public 



safe and satisfied. Never deviate from that 
purpose. No police program can be a suc- 
cess without aid from the public. In order 
to sell the public on your program, you 
must gain their friendly cooperation. 

No matter how you look at it, there are 
only two ways of getting the other fellow 
to do what you want him to do. Persua- 
sion, and force are those two ways. Persua- 
sion or salesmanship is the better factor 
to use. The more intelligent we become 
the more apt we are to abandon the use of 
force in any of our relationships with other 
human beings. Only when persuasion fails 
should we resort to any kind of force, and 
even then it should be tempered with dis- 
cretion and administered with reluctance. 
Force is a very dangerous instrument at

"unknown program." An informed pub- 
lit is a cooperative public. Regardless of 
our police purpose, public support is es- 
sential to a successful consummation of 
that purpose. Public support of laws and 
regulations is all important. A public that 
voluntarily, because of police good will, 
obeys the laws and ordinances relieves 
the police of a great burden. Public sup- 
port and commendations build morale and 
makes the job much easier. 

Here's a good example. A number of 
school bond proposals had been turned 
down by the citizens of Berkeley at several 
elections. The Berkeley Police Department 
had been in the crowded basement of the 
city hall for 30 years, and the city fathers 
couldn't see how we could get new cjuar- 
tres without a bond issue. (I was a mem- 
ber of that department at the time. ) They 
warned us of the almost impossible task 
of putting over a bond issue. We gambled 
on our reputation with our citizens. Mind 
you we had served them faithfully and 
well since that town marshal, August 
Vollmer, took over the protection of that 
city in 190-4. He later on became our first 
police chief and retired in 193'>. 

Our citizens did not let us down. Our 
bond issue went over six to one and we 
were provided with the finest police struc- 
ture in the United States. We were mighty 
proud of our Hall of Justice and also 
mighty proud of our Berkeley Citizens. 
We tried that much harder to do the job 
we and the citizens could be proud of. 
Believe it or not, but daily our mail was 
full of letters of commendation, and it 
was not unusual for citizens to place a 
complaint and then call back to thank us 
for our action. Needless to say, I, like all 
the rest, was proud to be a Police Offiier 
in Berkeley. 

Get Good Will 

This Berkeley example shows what 
friendliness can do for a police depart- 
ment. A friendly helpful attitude on the 
part of the police is favorable to gixid re- 
lations and cooperation. Positive action 
must be taken to influence public good 
will. Be friend Iv if you wish friends; be 
helpful if you clesire help and be cooper- 
ative if you wish cooperation. It all lx)ils 
down to the old saying, "You can latch a 
lot more flics with sugar than you lan with 
vmcgar." The yxKt Browning once said, 
"When a man's fight begins with himself 
he is worth something. " ITierc lies the root 
of most of our problems — ourselves. We 
must control ourselves if we wish to con- 
trol others. We must keep an open mind 
and be willing to learn, if we desire to 
te.uh others. Instead of condemning peo- 
ple let s try to understand them.

POLICE AND 



you are in a position to develop the atti- 
tudes in the public that you feel are de- 
sirable and to tone down those that are less 
desirable. Our greatest handicap as human 
beings is that we tend to exercise our 
leadership in such a way as to defeat our 
purpose. We become officious, far too 
easily. There is no place on the shoulder 
ot a police officer's uniform to carry a 
Jiip. At best, you get only "obedience" 
trom a narrowminded autocratic attitude. 
But from a friendly democratic helpful 
attitude you get "Cooperation." The re- 
sults will be far more gratifying from co- 
operation, than from mere compliance or 
obedience. 

Up To Individual 

Your Sheriff or Chief of Police can be 
the grandest type of individual. But, he 
cannot do the task alone. The individual 
officer and his attitude is the most impor- 
tant factor. Also the good derived from 
good public relations does npt altogether 
fall on the department head, but is reaped 
by all the members of the department. It 
not only makes the jobs of the men easier, 
but is reflected in better working condi- 
tions and pay, when that time come^ 
around. 

Just to sum up the general aspects of 
public relations suffice it to say; be honest, 
be fair, be just and above all be a gentle- 
man. Follow ihe golden rule and the basic 
teachings of your God. Hypocrisy has no 
place in public relations. Sow the seeds of 
intelligence and reap goodwill and success. 
Sow the seeds of vindictiveness and reap 
chaos and confusion. There is a choice 
and you, the individual officer, must make 
it. Remember, public relations is the key- 
stone that "keeps the arch of securit)' from 
crumbling. 

Here are some specific police tasks that 
directly bear on public relations : 

The officer at the front complaint desk 
is the citizen's first contact with the office. 
He must display a pleasant smile and a 
courteous attitude. Don't ever be guilt}- of 
displaying a stupid grin in the place of a 
pleasant smile; there is a vast difference. 
Even the most trivial complaint, and there 



will be many of them, should be treated 
with the same courtesy as the most impor- 
tant cases. In taking the complaint, even 
though it may seem like a trivial matter 



Hello." It would be wise to develop .. 
iven routine of conversation and adhere 
) it. For example: Sheriff's Office, Davis 
speaking. " Then after the initial state-

to the officer, it is of major .importance to ments are made, take control of the con 



the citizen, at that moment or hejuould 
not have bothered to come in to complain. 
Any slovenly or lackadaisical attitude on 
the part of the officer is detrimental to the 
whole department. If the case is of such 
trivial nature that no action at all can be 
taken, write your report and so stite 'but 
do record that contact. Above all if you 
plan no action except the taking of the 
complaint, then thdnk the citizen for his 
interest and so inform him, explaining the 
situation to him. The intelligent officer 
handles all complaints alike at the com- 
plaint desk. 

Talkinc; Otj Phoni- 

Your telephone personality also is of 
utmost importance. Your tone may often 
give more offense than the actual v.'ords 
you say. "When a man speaks, his wgrds 
convey his thought and his tone conveys 
his mood." Speak clearly and loud enough 
to be understood. Making yourself under- 
stood over the phone is more a matter Of 
eniihciation and pronunciation than ac- 
ceiTt (^Toice leiel. Remember that you are 
speaking'^to a person, and not just into an 
eTCCtric3il device. 

Don't grab the phone and shout

versation and get the information you 
want in a pleasant efficient manner. The 
following is a suggested form that can be 
developed and will tend to limit conver- 
sation and save a lot of wrangling and 
idle gossip. An example of how you can 
control the conversation and get the most 
important information follows. "Sheriff s 
Office, Davis speaking, may I help 
you?" ...

neighbor." 

Davis: "What is your address please?" 

Answer: "832 Elm Street." 

Davis: "What seems to be the trouble?" 

Answer: "You see my neighbor is get- 
ting old and crabby, etc." 

Davis: "Just what is the specific trouble 
at this time? I have an officer available." 

Answer: "He shot at my dog as he 
passed through the back yard." 

Now you have enough to dispatch a 
car on, you have the pertinent information, 
if the line should become disconnected 
you have enough to go on. 

Next Question: "May I have your name 
please?" 

Answer: "John Smith. " 

Davis: "Is that S-M-I-T-H or S-M-Y- 
T-H-E?" Ask for the initial too, you want 
to have your files correct. 

Next you ask: "May I have your phone 
number, please?" 

Answer: "345 678." 

Next you wish to know, "Where is the 
neighbor with the gun now?" 

Up to this point you haven't permitted 
the complainant to wander off in a lot of 
wild accusations or idle gossip over past 
feuds. You haven't tried to solve the case 
over the phone. You haven't fouled up the 
whole thing for the beat officer who must 
make the contact. You have your essential 
information so close the conversation with 
the statement, "The officer has your com- 
plaint and will be there in a few minutes. 
Thank you very much for your call." 

If the citizen who calls only wants to 
indulge in a bit of gum beating and idle 
conversation, you may listen for a while 
and then excuse yourself at the first oppor- 
tunity when another phone rings or you 
may even arrange for another phone to 
ring and politely excuse yourself. 
Man On The Beat 

The man on the Beat is the fellow who 
is literally and actually in the front line 
when it comes to public relations. His 
every contact with a fellow human being 
will reflect in the relationships of his de- 
partment. His dress, his walk, his opinion. 
A neat, clean shaven, and cleanly clothed 
officer will reflect an efficient appearance. 
Every single officer in the department owes 
it to himself, his department and his pro- 
fession to be properly groomed and scru- 
pulously clean in his person at all times. 
Uniforms should be clean and well pressed 
at all times. Belts, badges, shoes and cap 
brims should be cleaned and polished 
regularly. 

Do not enter into idle discussions re- 
garding any matter regardless of its nature. 
Avoid boastful remarks as to your accom- 
plishments as an officer. In fact an officer 
should avoid just hanging around talking 
and gossiping. He has more important

things to do. If you have a few moments to 
kill or wish to smoke, get out of the pub- 
lic view to do so. Even the people he 
might gossip with will wonder eventually, 
if he doesn't have more to do. Whenever 
you are in the public eye, and that is al- 
l ways; you are a one man Chamber of Com- 
I merce and Good Will Ambassador. You 
I are the frontline representative for your 
. department. When information is given 
i' to you, say. "Thank you," in a genuine, 
I'l sincere manner; be pleasant and courteous 
'', without any semblance of familiarity. 

In handling complaints, we shall deal 
here only in the public relations work nec- 
essary m handling them. Here is an oppor- 
tunity to really shine in your chance to 
Ij build good public relations. You have 
! an unhappy individual and when you have 
i satisfied him you have a "Satisfied Cus- 
I tomer." Nothing builds good business, 
I regardless of its nature, like satisfied cus- 
j tomers. Get to the complaint just as rapid- 
', ly as possible. Don't put off going on a 

I ■ complaint just because it seems of a trivial 
I; nature. Once there, get down to the busi- 
|! ness of the day, the exact nature of the 

II complaint, and what you can do about it. 
Know how to most efficiently handle each 
type of complaint, and do so at once. 

Prevent Feuds 

One very important point to remember 

in the "Satisfied customer" routine is the 

so called "second contact" of the com- 

)lainant. After you have handled a com-

plaint and done ail you can do, contact the 
complainant, by phone or in person, ex- 
plain the action taken, explain your or his 
limitations and in short let him know as 
diplomatically as possible what has been 
done about his complaint. Do this in such 
a way that you will avoid promoting neigh- 
borhood feuds. This second contact is one 
of the most important steps in handling a 
complaint. About the only step you could 
leave out and do more damage is not to 
even go on the call at all. 

When asking for information say, "May 
I have your name please?" or "May I have 
your address please?" or whatever the 
nature of the information you require may 
be. Show respect for all, and fear for 
none. 'Volunteer your help when you see 
you can be of assistance, don't be lazy or

shirk your duty. >X'hen called into court, 
dress and act the part of an officer. Be neat 
in your dress, clean in your appearance, 
and unbiased in your testimony. Pay atten- 
tion to the proceedings in Court. No need 
to act like a manikin but actually you are 
on display for your department, so try to 
be a credit to it. 

Civic meetings, schools and youth or- 
ganizations to which various officers of a 
department will be invited to speak are 
excellent means of creating favorable pub- 
lic relations. Support for various police 
programs can be obtained by presenting 
the case to civic groups and explaining 
your situation in an intelligent manner. 
Such speeches are usually arranged by a 
supervisory officer of your department. If 
you as an individual should be contacted 
for a speech, that is tine; however, clear 
with your superiors prior to making any 
public appearance before groups in a 
planned meeting. 

Youth Groups 

Working with youth organizations 
should be part of any long range public 
relations program. Junior Police and Dep- 
uty groups are ideal places through which 
we can build that friendly attitude towards 
the officer and his department. Build re- 
spect for the officers through friendly asso- 
ciation and we will have gone a long way 
in tearing down that old fear of the peace 
officer. 

Should you be called on at an im- 
promptu meeting to make a statement, 
stick pretty well to generalities, that you 
are sure are part of the overall policy of 
your department. The idea isn't to muzzle 
the officer, but is to keep him from stick- 
ing out his neck, or that of his whole de- 
partment, in S(jme rash statement that will 
not hold water. 

Press relations are more or less of a 
specifu tixed nature. They are established 
by the command group of a department. 
While they effect the beat man in ma-y 
lases, it is actually the command group of 
a department that should release informa- 
tion to the press. It is all important to have 
gocKl |irc-ss relations, for they very directly 
affect the nature of the public relations of 
a department. 

Remember when you put on that badge 
and uniform, then tcx)k your oath of office, 
you received NO special dispensation as 
a privileged character. Instead you ob- 
ligated yourself to the service of your fel- 
lowman, in the protection of .society. In 
order to serve your fcllowman in an im- 
[sartial manner, you must be intelligent, 
lourtcous, firm and unbiased. 
It Is Up Tf) Yoi' 

In order to better scne your fellowmaii, 
your lounty, your state, your country and 
vour frtxl, you must be a gentleman at all 
(imcs. and at all cost. That badge of office 



did not exempt you from your obligations 
OS a citizen and neighbor, but instead it 
added to your obligations. 

In your enforcement of the law still 
maintain your attitude of assistance. Show 
the offender that you are interested in his 
welfare also. Whether the man be a crim- 
inal or the complainant, be firm but fair. 
Never make threats to a criminal suspect. 
A good admonition here is to never prom- 
ise a man something you are in no posi- 
tion to deliver. If you promise to assist 
him, do so. If you promise to lock him up, 
do so. If you are in no position to make 
an arrest, do not make the threat of an 
arrest. In short be a man of your word. 

Study the geography and history of your 
particular locality, so that you may be able 
to intelligently answer questions of the 
general public. Know your public officials, 
and the officers of neighboring depart- 
ments. Above all, study and know your 
job, and that of your superior. If you un- 
derstand the job of your superior as well 
as your own job, you will better under- 
stand his problems and be able to assist 
him in his duties that pertain to you and 
your job. 

REMEMBER: Good Public Relations 
is the keystone that keeps the arch of 
security from crumbling. The Public Re- 
lations of your department are as good or 
bad as you the individual officer makes 
them.

anywhere — begins September 20, 1956, 
and continues through June 17, 1957. 

Twenty-four of the men were awarded 
grants-in-aid by the Kemper Foundation 
for Traffic Safety, sponsored by the Lum- 
bermens Mutual Casualty Company and 
the American Motorists Insurance Com- 
pany. Eight were declared eligible to at- 
tend as tuition-paying students. 

The Kemper Foundation, which has 
been providing funds for police officers to 
attend the Traffic Institute since 1936, 
gave 17 $1,650 fellowships and four $675 
tuition scholarships (three state fellow- 
ships were split equally between two offi- 
cers from each of three departments.) In 
the past 20 years this Foundation has con- 
tributed nearly a half million dollars for 
police training at the Traffic Institute. 
James S. Kemper, chairman of the Lum- 
bermens Casualty Company and former 
ambassador to Brazil, is chairman of the 
Kemper Foundation. 

The 32 men chosen for specialized 
training in traffic police administration 
represent 13 municipal police departments, 
eight state police and highway patrol or- 
ganizations, the Chicago Park District Po- 
lice, the U. S. Air Force, the Cuban Na- 
tional Police, the Cuban Army, and two 



foreign police agencies to be named by the 
International Cooperation Administration. 

The Institute's two-semester course in 
police traffic supervision is designed espe- 
cially for executives and administrative 
personnel of police departments and in- 
cludes more than 1,200 hours of classroom 
study and discussion, work projects, and 
field study trips. The four main areas of 
subject matter covered are: non-police 
highway transportation agencies and prob- 
lems, functions of traffic police, manage- 
ment of police service, and related general 
education subjects. 

The 32 men chosen successfully com- 
pleted a selection process which included 
aptitude tests, personal interviews, and 
consideration of such factors as the extent 
of the accident and congestion problem in 
the applicant's community and his depart- 
ment's plans for profitable use of his 
training. 

The 1956-57 course will be the Insti- 
tute's 31st in traffic police administration. 
Seven hundred and seventy-one men have 
completed the previous 30 courses. In ad- 
dition, more than 15,000 others in traffic 
work have received Institute training in 
courses, conferences, and seminars at 
Northwestern and in state and regional 
programs througout the country.

PEDESTRIAN TOLL 

Fewer pedestrians lost their lives in the 
United States than in any other single year 
on record, says the California State Auto- 
mobile Association. 

In California, however, the 751 toll for 
1^)55 was an increase over the 681 total in 

The year's nationwide toll of 7,482 was 
ix\ealed in a survey of the motor vehicle 
■utident statistics made by the American 
Automobile Association. 

The previous low was in 1954, when 
.nie 7,900 persons died as the result of 
hcing struck by vehicles. The worst year 
w.is 1937, with a tally of 15,500 pedes- 
tn.ms killed. 

In announcing the new record-low figure 
Mr fatal pedestrian accidents, the AAA 
pr.iised the many state and local officials 
who have been responsible for enactment 
.uid enforcement of intelligent, progres- 
si\e traffic laws and ordinances designed to 
^i\e greater protection to pedestrians. 

Among other reasons for the dramatic 
progress being made in the field of pedes- 
tri.m safety in the face of a rising popula- 
tion and vehicle registration are engineer- 
ing improvements and public education," 
the motorists' organization said, adding: 

"The elementary schools, especially, are 
doing an outstanding job. There is hardly 
a pupil in the United States who is not 
taught the basic principles of safe walking. 
! If we were doing the same job with begin- 
ning drivers, we could probably point with 
equal pride to other motor vehicle accident 
Statistics."

HOW ABOUT A LITTERBAG.' For a clean car and clean highways, the latest is a litterbag 
— a paper bag to carry in your car for papers, cartons, cans and bottles. Motorists are warned 
by the police departments of California and by the AAA that tossing litter out of cars is 
against the law and subject to strict penalties.

BIKE RIDING RULES 

Bicycle riders are involved in ten traffic 
accidents each day says the California 
Highway Patrol. 

"This fact was taken from our file of 
accident records which also indicates fail- 
ure to obey the rules as the leading cause 
of traffic accidents involving bicycles," Pa- 
trol Commissioner B. R. Caldwell de- 
clared. "Frequently, when a bicycle rider 
disobeys the rules or takes chances, he 
comes into violent contact with an auto- 
mobile or other motor vehicle. 

When a 90-pound bicycle meets a 3000- 
pound mass of metal the bicycle rider 
always loses," Caldwell said. "To avoid ac- 
cidents and secure more pleasure from 
bicycle riding the following rules should 
be obeyed: 

1. Keep to the right — always ride with 
trattic. 

2. Obey all traffic signs and signals. 

3. Use a white light in front and a red 
light or reflector in the rear when riding 
after dark. 

4. Wear some article of white clothing at 
night. 

5. Ride single file and only one person on 
each bike. 

6. Keep your bicycle in good mechanical 
condition. 

7. Do your stunting off the streets and 
highways. 

8. Stay off freeways that are marked for 
motor vehicles only. 

9. When in doubt about the rules ask any 
traffic law enforcement officer to explain 
them to you. '

DRUNK DRIVERS 

Drinking drivers are a growing menace 
on our highways." 

This charge was made a few days ago by 

California Highway Patrol Commissioner 

B. R. Caldwell as he reviewed the accident 

ind arrest reports for the unincorporated 

.ircis covering the first five months of 1956. 

With an increase of 13.2 per cent in 

.ULidents involving drivers who had been 

drinking as compared to a 10.7 per cent 

increase in all accidents, drinking drivers 

are piling up a shameful record of death 

I and injury," Caldwell continued. "Investi- 

I . gation indicates much of the driving while 

under the influence of alcohol is the result 

oi lack of realization of the hazards in- 

voi\ ed with such actions. 

Many times even a couple of drinks will 
slow the reaction time to the danger point 
.ind set the scene for a potential accident," 
the Commissioner said. "Then when a tight 
situ.ition occurs requiring quick, positive 
thinking, and a fast reaction to Uvoid an 
accident, the drinking driver is in trouble." 
Don't Die, Drive Dry" and "If you 
drink, don't drive" are both good slogans 
well worthy of serious consideration by all 
drivers.

POLICEMAN'S WIFE 

Heroes are portrayed in written words 

In pictures, verses and song, 

While Heroines recline where bright stars shine 

Reserved for the brave and the strong. 

There is one unsung for her glorious deeds 

In this modern, dangerous age, 

Yet she's a halo of light on the darkest night 

For each act on life's great stage. 

Her faith, her courage and earnest prayers 

Guide a man tvho enforces the law. 

And silent lips, follow his many trips 

Through the jungles of tooth and claw. 

Here in the background lives hope and cheer 

Fighting the evils of trouble and strife, 

She's a Heroine true, to a man in blue 

God keep her always, "Policeman's Wife." 



—Victor C. Kelso 



HE SWALLOWS BEE 

Back New Jersey way a motorist was re- 
cently rolling down the road when a busy 
bee flew in his window and right into his 
mouth. Somewhat disconcerted by all this, 
points out the National Automobile Club, 
the motorist lost control of the situation 
and piled his car into another car that was 
parked at the side of the road. Much to 
his amazement he found that he wasn't 
scratched, he wasn't stung. The only casu- 
alty in the whole afl^air was the bee. It was 
swallowed.

HELMETS PAYING OFF 



The motorcycle patrol officers of Los 
Angeles, who do some of the most hazard- 
ous riding in the nation, because of the 
miles of high-speed city expressways they 
are required to patrol by motorcycle, have 
received the protection of the newest de- 
velopment in safety helmets, department 
officials recently announced. 

Following years of painstaking research 
into the whole problem of safety helmets, 
the Los Angeles Police Department has de- 
veloped a safety helmet which utilizes a 
half-inch thickness of crushable foamed 
polystyrene for interior padding. 

The new headguards will be standard 
on-duty uniform for an initial group of 
350 Los Angeles motor officers, and will 
make the Los Angeles police among the 
first big-city units to adopt the safety hel- 
met as standard equipment. 

Secret of the polystyrene liner is that it 
absorbs and dissipates shock energy re- 
ceived by a blow on the helmet, rather than 
storing and returning the energy, as is the 
case with helmet liners made of foam rub- 
ber and similar resilient materials. 

Details of the helmet construction in- 
clude an outer shell of glass fiber re- 
inforced plastic, which has a high penetra- 
tion resistance, a smart visor of polished 
black patent material and a fitted interior 



hatband. 

Another major design detail is the inclu- 
sion of spongelike soft buffeting pads, at- 
tached to each leather ear cover, to prevent 
wind noises inside the helmet at high 
speeds. These pads also protect the ears 
against chilling, research tests disclose. 

Los Angeles police officials who directed 
the long-schedule helmet research project 
based their final conclusions on the finan- 
cial aspects of skull protection for officers. 

"Actually, the cost of the research and 
the bill for the helmets will be repaid in 
full by the saving of the life of one officer," 
the department stated. 

"It costs the taxpayers $20,000 to train 
a motorcycle officer up to the point of five 
years service," the spokesman said. "Dur- 
ing a five-year period, motorcycle accidents 
alone within the department resulted in the 
deaths of five officers, in addition to a total 
of 71 serious head injuries with resultant 
loss of 2000 work days. 

"The time lost alone, cost the depart- 
ment the equivalent of eight motor officers 
working regular shifts for a solid year. 
Many, if not all of the injuries and fatali- 
ties over this five year span could have been 
prevented or greatly minimized, if the vic- 
tims had been wearing an efficient type of 
safety helmet."

BUTTERFLY SWARMS 

Visit Monterey, Pacific Grove, or Car- 
pinteria and you re almost sure to hear 
about the butterflies. In this case the butter- 
flies will be the giant Monarchs, their red- 
dish-brown wings veined with black. And 
you'll hear about them because of their 
most unusual semi-annual migratory flight 
that takes them over the hundreds of miles 
from Alaska to California. 

There are migratory flights and migra- 
tory flights but that of the Monarchs is 
most unusual for they fly only one way and 
then die; their progeny fly back to the start 
ing point in Alaska. 

Let us look at the cycle as it occurs each 
year. In the late summer, Monarchs from 
the meadowlands of Alaska start to congre- 
gate in large groups and move down the 
coast, recounts the National Automobile 
Club. As they go, they are joined by other 
Monarchs along the way and soon great 
masses of them are winging their way 
southward. Down along Washington and 
Oregon they go, and mto California. In 
Central California they wing out across 
Monterey Bay and then begin to take to 
the trees at Monterey, Pacific Grove, and 
farther south at Carpinteria. On the same 
Monterey pines and live oaks on which 
they have been swarming for years, they 
settle down, each hanging to the end of a 
|iine needle, wings folded, dormant. For 
four long months they nap there, and then, 
\\ ith the coming of spring, they aw.iken. 

In the early spring they breed and die. 
Their progeny flutter abtiut the hills and 
valleys, feeding on the milkweed, gaining 
strength for the long journey back to the 
North. And then, one day, these butterflies 
lx)rn in Monterey begin to move out in 
little groups, begin to move up the coast. 
Northward they go, feeding lightly on 
plant nectar as they go, and coming at last 
to the meadowlands that their parents had 
left the late summer before. There they 
will bred and die and their progeny will 
come down to Monterey. 

So strange is this flight that each year 
the arrival of the Monarch is celebrated by 
.1 Butterfly Pageant in Pacific Grove and 
[H)licc of the area are not slow to arrest 
anyone found disturbing or destroying the 
butterflies during their long winter sleep.

POLICE AND PtALH OFFICERS' JOURNAL 



P.f;. 



MAYBE YOU DIDN'T KNOW THAT . . . 

Scotland Yard is NOT the headquarters of a national police department; the "City of London" is policed by a private 
department; English "constables" are required to attend police schools; the German Secret Service Section's job is to look 
after the safety of the leaders of the German Federal Republic; autos drive at 80 to 100 miles an hour in West Germany and 
no arrests are made — 

These are some of the interesting subjects touched upon by Col. C. W. Woodson, Jr., superintendent of the Virginia 
State Police, who recently returned from a visit to the police departments of England and Germany. He writes his impres- 
sions, as follows, in the Police Chief. 



On April 22 of this year, I returned 
from a most interesting and informative 
tour of police departments, police schools 
and forensic science (criminal) laborator- 
ies in England and Western Germany. 
This was made possible through the kind 

I'itation of Mrs. Frances Glessner Lee 

r Littleton, N. H., who established a 

foundation in her name some years ago 

finance and supervise seminars in homi- 
cide investigation for state police officers 
at the Harvard School of Legal Medicine. 

Upon my arrival in London, I learned 
th.it all police agencies in England and 
W.iles are responsible to the Crown 
through the Office of the Home Secretary, 
which is known at the "Home Office" or 
"Home Department." This department is 
headed by the Home Secretary or, officially, 
the Secretary of State for Home Affiairs, 
and is charged with the management of 
the internal affiairs of the countr)'. The

Home Secretary has cabinet rank. 
Scotland Yard 

The department employs four inspectors 
who are responsible for the periodic in- 
spection of city and county police depart- 
ments. Should the various departments be 
found in good order and efficiency, the 
British government assumes half the cost 
of operation with the individual depart- 
ment paying the other half. Thus it is 
readily apparent that each chief constable, 
whose rank compares with that of our 
chiefs of police, is forever striving to main- 
tain the highest posible standards in his 
organization. 

Contrary to general opinion, Scotland 
Yard is not the headquarters of a national 
police department since no such headquar- 
ters exists. It is, however, the headquarters 
of the Metropolitan Police Department 
with jurisdiction over the 700 square miles 
and 8I/2 million people which comprise 
London. Scotland Yard has an authorized 
strength of 20,000 men but now, due to 
salary difficulties, only 15,000 are em- 
ployed. 

There is one metropolitan exception 
to the jurisdiction of Scotland Yard. It 
does not have control over an area known 
as the "Old London City" or, simply, 
"Cit)' of London." This consists of one 
square mile within the corporate limits of 
Greater London within which are located 
the stock markets, banks and insurance 
companies. It is policed by its own depart- 
ment with an authorized strength of 1,000 
men.

and Wales is performed by either cit)- or

r.Ues o( pay in the various ranks, are given 
the same training courses and enforce the 
same laws. Naturally, this promotes con- 
siderable uniformity in the field of law 
enforcement. It is interesting to note that 
no officer habitually carries any type of 
(i rearm. 

The Home Office operates regional po- 
lice schools which each officer ("con- 
stable" in England) is recjuircd to attend. 
The cost is borne by the Flomc Office and 
the local department is assessed for a pro- 
portionate share of the expense based on 
the number of constables employed. In 
addition, the Home Office o|5erates re- 
gional forensic science or crime labor- 
atories on the same financial basis. 
In Private Homes 

Scotland Yard and various other ad- 
ministrative headquarters were included 
in my visits as well as some of the regional 
police schools and crime laboratories. 
These schools and laboratories are housed 
in buildings which were formerly the 
private homes of wealthy people who, due 
to heavy taxes of the present day, have 
been unable to maintain them. The police 
college I visited at Ryton-on-Dunsmore 
offered tourses in Fingerprinting, Pho- 
tography, Standard Motor Vehicle Oper- 
ation, Advanced Motor Vehicle Operation, 
Forensic Science, Dog Handling and 
Training for Probationary Constables, In- 
spectors, Chief Inspectors, Sergeants, In- 
structors and Superintendents. "Superin- 
tendent" as a title in England docs not 
have the general connotation it does in 
this country but merely indicates a depart- 
ment head in any police agency.

Salary scales for British Polite do not 
compare favorably with those in the 
United States. They range from 14") 
pounds |ier year for a newly appointed 
(onstable to 1,J')0 pounds for a chief 
superintendent. The present value of the 
pound may fluctuate from S2.6I to $2.84.

that the cost of living is lower in Eng- 
land.)

the same offense in the United States, Lon- 
don, with 81/2 million people, averages 
some 30 such crimes per year. Norfolk, 
Va., with a population of less than 300,-

There are no speed limits in England

States mileage death rates but was unable 
to obtain the necessary figures. I did learn 
that some ^,200 people are killed there 
each year but, from some personal obser- 
vation of the traffic flow, I am inclined to 
believe that the United States has a better 
rate. 

Doc;s' Good Work 

While in England, I had the novel 
pleasure of witnessing a field trial for po- 
lice dogs on obedience and tracking and 
was astounded at the outstanding perform- 
ance of these dogs. The English believe 
both the Doberman Pinscher and Alsatian 
are superior to the bloodhound for track- 
ing. 

Throughout my visit in England, I 
met many high officials who were invar- 
iably most gracious and who went out of 
their way to make me comfortable and 
at home. I was further most favorably im- 
pressed with the integrity, loyalty to the 
Crown and devotion to police duties ex- 
hibited by all ranks whom I observed. 

Upon leaving England, I flew to Ger- 
many where I was met by the Head of the 
Lie Detector Operation of the U. S. Army 
Crime Laboratory at Frankfurt. His assist- 
ant, Mr. Hanus Zimmerman, a civilian em- 
ployee, was a German infantryman under 
Field Marshal Rommel during World 
War II, was captured by the British and 
later sent to America as a prisoner of war. 
He is familiar with most of our western 
and southern states and spoke fluent Eng- 
lish while acting as my interpreter. 
American Troops 

My next visit was to the Frankfurt City 
Police Department to meet Dr. Liftman, 
the Chief, whom I had known for years 
through our association in the Interna- 
tional Association of Chiefs of Police. Un- 
fortunately, he was absent from his office 
but his assistant conducted us through 
Headquarters and accompanied us to one 
of their precinct stations in the city. Also 
visited was the Crime Laboratory for the 
U. S. Army in Europe, located at Frank- 
furt, where we found the most modern 
equipment and facilities known to police 
science. 

Our troops are housed in the same excel- 
lent buildings, with modern facilities, in 
v/hich Hitler quartered his crack legions, 
as well as in housing developments which 
we have erected there for families of our 
military personnel. The latter are equally 
adequate for four-story building which 
give the appearance of large communities 
throughout the American Zone. 
Si-.CRET Service 

We traveled by car over the Autobahn, 
a road built by Hitler, to visit the Crime 
Laboratory of the West Germany Federal 
Police in Weisbaden where we met Dr. 
Dooley, the President, who outlined the 
functions of the nine divisions under his 



command. These include the Secret St i 
vice Section which consists of 280 people 
charged with the security and safety of the 
leaders of the German Federal Republic. 

One of the purposes of this office is the 
maintenance of liaison between state and 
municipal police agencies and judicial 
authorities through INTERPOL. In such 
cases, upon request of the Ministry of the 
Interior or the state government, investi- 
gations may be conducted by the Federal 
Ofiice. Otherwise the Federal Office rarely 
enters cases. 

The Fingerprint Section serves as a 
central repository for files and these are 
relatively new as they were not inaugurated 
until after f94') and all prints prior to 
this were destroyed. Classification is based 
upon the Henry system and there are ap- 
proximately 1,200,000 prints on file. All 
police agencies in Germany are required 
by law to forward copies to this office and 
all residents of Western Germany who 
move from one location to another must, 
within three days after arriving at their 
new and permanent addresses, register 
with the local police department. 
Central File 

We toured also the central file which 
contains the records of all persons involved 
in any crime in Western Germany. This 
section publishes what is known to us as 
a "daily bulletin" and which is dissemin- 
ated to all sections of Germany and to 
bordering countries. 

The Counterfeit Section is closely asso- 
ciated with the Federal Reserve Bank and 
handles investigations concerning counter- 
feit money, even though the actual inves- 
tigations are conducted by local police. In 
the Laboratory Section, we met Depart- 
ment Director Mally who has invented a 
device which can quickly identify the 
make, model and other characteristics of 
a typewriter. He has further catalogued 
and published an index of the many char- 
acteristics of all known typewriters in the 
world. By taking, as an example, an extor- 
tion note and consulting the catalogue, he 
is able to dial the characteristics of the

Mr. Mally also showed us an instrument 
which would remove blacked-out sections 
of documents by the use of supersonic 
waves. This office has also Narcotics, Tox- 
icological, Arson and Explosion, Firearms 
and Biological Sections. The people whom 
we met appeared to be glad to have us 
visit them and asked that we extend their 
greetings to the police officers of this 
countr)'. Their capability impressed us as 
much as their friendliness. 

100 Miles An Hour 
Military Police Headquarters for the 
U. S. Army in Europe was next on the list 
and there we toured all sections of the 
Headquarters installations. In Western 
Germany, as in England, there is no speed 
limit. On the Autobahn, a wonderful high- 
way from an engineering standpoint, we 
saw thousands of scooters and low-horse- 
power motor vehicles moving at low 
speeds but high-powered cars, such as the 
Mercedes, traveled at from 80 to 100 mph. 
With this condition existing, it is easy to 
understand why so many people are killed 
on the highways of Western Germany. 

Here, I also tried to draw some compari- 
son of their mileage death rate with that 
of ours but was again unable to do so foi 
lack of information on traffic flow. In 
1950, there were 1,949,803 vehicles regis- 
tered in Western Germany. By \9^'>. this 
figure had increased to 4,'i5'i,600 which 
does not include the thousands we have in 
the American Zone. These statistics should 
indicate that most German motorists have 
limited driving experience. 

Problems Similar 

Deaths on Western Germany highways, 
not including those of our militar)- per- 
sonnel, numbered 11,200 during the 
months of April, 1955 through Januar)', 
1956, and this figure is ample evidence 
that the mileage death rate of Western 
Germany is terrific. This theory was fur- 
ther strengthened by my own observations 
as to traffic flow. 

We found the cit\' police function in 
utics while state police operate in rural 
sections. There appears to be a dose work- 
ing relationship between all Western Ger- 
many police agencies and their officers 
gave the impression of efficiency and ade- 
quate training. Very little work is done at 
the Federal level. 

It is my conclusion that police problems 
are basically the same in the countries I 
visited as well as the United States, al- 
though we might use a slightly different 
.ipproach to various problems.

AAA motorists' organization pointed oul 
that California is now receiving aboui 
$47,100,000 a year. However, this amouni 
will be immediately increased to $1 10,000, 
000 for the 1957 fiscal year because of the 
new Federal Aid funds. The new amoun 
will be gradually amplified annually, reach 
ing $161,200,000 in the 1959 fiscal year^ 
and will even go higher for several succeed- 
ing years. 

The breakdown for the next three fiscal 
years is as follows : 

URBAN 

18,200,000 
19,000,000 
19,600,000 
56,800,000 

The amount shown above for the fiscal 
year 1957 includes authorizations already 
contained in the Federal Aid Act of 1954. 
The grand total for the three years is $4l4,- 
600,000. 

Essentially the new Federal Highway 
Act is the "Motorists' Program for Better 
Highways " advocated by the American 
Automobile Association which was vigor- 
ously supported by the CSAA. 

"The AAA program, in summary, called 
for a 15-year, three-stage, pay-as-you-build 
plan for highway construction financed by 
moderate, graduated increases in certain 
Federal automotive taxes," the motoring 
organization states.

BE A RIGHT GUY 

Eliminate competition on our streets and 
highways and you will reduce our traffic 
toll considerably says the California High- 
way Patrol. 

"Grabbing the right-of-way, racing to 
get ahead of the other fellow and cutting 
in and out of traffic are all competitive but 
unsportsmanlike actions," declared Ross R. 
McDonald, Deputy Commissioner of the 
Patrol. "These are hazardous, illegal acci- 
dent causing manuevcrs accounting for a 
large share of our annual traffic accident 
toll. 

"Cooperation and obedience to the 
rules, plus a recognition of hazards is nec- 
essary for safety in traffic," the Deputy 
continued. "Without these elements your 
chance of survival in todays traffic is rather 
5lim. Make safety your companion in traf- 
fic by obeying all the rules and helping the 
other fellow drive safely too."

COP ON THE CORNER 

(Continued from page i) 

for stolen cars whose license numbers were 
read out that morning at roll call. Break- 
ing up a gang of teen-agers out for no 
good and giving them a few words of 
warning. Catching a speeder. Convincing 
Mr. Life-of-the-Party to let his wife drive 
home . . . 

On the other hand, it may mean split- 
second decisions when dealing with an in- 
sane person — over which psychiatrists will 
wrangle for weeks in the courts. Another 
case may mean bringing out the pistol and 
aiming at the leg of a criminal, quelling 
a riot, raiding a dope den . . . 

Those eight hours on duty can bring 
anything — but they seldom bring appreci- 
ation. 

The Kid's Friend 

Perhaps we parents can do something 
about this. Instead of ranting about "that 
mean cop " who gave us a ticket, we can 
take it philosophically (at least in front of 
the children) and explain that the officer 
is only doing his duty so that everybody 
will have a chance to park. 

And never must we threaten to "call a 
policeman" in a disciplinary problem we 
should handle. 

Matter of fact, that "little lost boy" 
may some day be our own — or the "gang 
of teen-agers" getting the words of warn- 
ing may contain one of ours . . . 

We want our children to be law-abid- 
ing citizens and have due respect for the 
officers of the law — to appreciate that 
"Cop on the Corner. "

WHY FREEWAYS? 

Freeways and limited aiiess highways 
are born out of the needs and necessities of 
of a nation that has 63,000,000 motor ve- 
hicles and each year has millions more, 
according to the California State Auto- 
mobile Association. 

The organization points out that free- 
ways are not ingenious constructions de- 
vised by government agencies to "move the 
cities to make room for the automobiles." 

Every person who owns or drives an 
automobile, and that includes the vast ma- 
jority of adults, is contributing to today's 
traffic problem whether he or she is con- 
sciously aware of the fact. The problem is 
— how to make is possible for ever-increas- 
ing numbers of vehicles to move from one 
place to another without undue delays, 
serious congestion, traffic stagnation and 
accident dangers, says the CSAA. 

"There were people who opposed the 
advent of the automobile and the repercus- 
sions it created in all aspects of life. Per- 
haps the horse-and-buggy .ige had its ad- 
vantages, but that day has gone by the buck- 
boards. We must face up to the reality that 
California has nearly 7,000,000 motor ve- 
hicles today and the number is increasing 
by almost 50,000 a month. Statistics show 
that the rate of increase in registration this 
year is 27 per cent greater than it was a 
year ago, " the CSAA stated, adding: 

"California is rapidly becoming an in- 
dustrial empire and every city- in the state 
is being affected by increases in population 
and traKic volume. This trend can no more 
be halted than trying to hold back the tides 
of the sea, so now is the time to plan and 
construct intelligently to meet this chal- 
lenge not only for today but for the future 
•IS well. The greatest problem facing us is 
actually not how to co[->e with 7,000,000 
motor vehicles that 13,000,000 Californi- 
ans are presently using on our streets and 
highways, but how to cope with 1 2,000,000 
vehicles some 20.000,000 [x»ple will be 
using on streets and highways by 1970, 
just a few short years hence." 

Today, more than at any time in history, 
men of vision are needed who are willing 
to take the lead in developing a master plan 
for all public facilities and urban develop- 
ments to meet our future nc-cds. And this 
includes the development of an adequate 
highway system. We need to plan wisely 
and well for tomorrow if we are to make 
the most of the great opportunities which 
will come our way, says the CSAA. 

If you're out in a small boat and get 
caught in a storm, don't run from the 
waves, advises the National Automobile 
Club. Head into the waves and you II 
avoid getting swamped

CALIFORNIA'S PAROLES LAUDED 



California's system of granting paroles 
is cited as an example for the United 
States in an article based upon the "Fad 
Sheet" of the National Conference on 
Parole and printed by the Pennsylvania 
Chiefs of Police "Association. The article, 
of intense interest to all law enforcement 
officers, follows in full. 

Every year at least 1 ,000,000 adults and 
young offenders (18 to 20 years old) are 
: sentenced for serious crimes by judges in 
:Our criminal courts. Of those sentenced to 
I the nations prisons, 98 per cent are re- 
' leased after serving an average of two and 
a half to three years. 

During 19'53 there were 222,696 adult 
prisoners in state prisons of whom 59,312 
were released. Of those released, 32,525, 
lor 54.8 per cent, were paroled; 1,508 re- 
ceived other forms of conditional release; 
rand 25,279 were unconditionally released 
with no form of supervision or control. 

Each year more than 750,000 adults 
serve sentences in local jails. Few states 
have any provision for release on parole 
from jails. In 1953, approximately 30,000 
delinquent children were in the more than 
250 training institutions designed prima- 
i rily for delinquent children. 

Cost Of Parole 
A conservative estimate puts the cost of 
I crime to this countr)' at $20 billion a year. 
(This does not include the cost of main- 
taining a prisoner's family on relief and

the lojs of his producing and spending ca- 
pacity, including taxes.) It costs, roughly, 
between $1,200 and 51,500 a year to main- 
tain an individual in prison. Nearly all 
correctional institutions are overcrowded; 
new prisons cost from $10,000 to $15,000 
per cell. Under the best parole system it 
would cost no more than $250 a year to 
keep an offender under surveillance — and 
provide him with guidance to help him 
re-e3tabli';h himself — outside of prison. 
A passable parole system can be main- 
tained at 10 per cent of the cost of main- 
taining an individual in prison; a more 
adequate one at 25 per cent the cost. 
Some Inadequate 

Considering the centuries that society 
has grappled with the problems of pre- 
venting crime and treating violators — from 
the days of the wheel and rack to encour- 
age penitence, achieve vengeance or ap- 
pease the gods, to the days of making the 
punishment fit the crime — parole is a 
fairly new concept. Ignoring the days of 
the penal colonies and the ticket of leave, 
parole as we know it — worked out and 
put into practice by a state agency — dates 
from 1876. The first parole system was 
adopted by the Elmira Reformatory, in 
New York.

a model lav,' developed by the National 
Probation and Parole Association upon 
which many state acts are based, was pub- 
lished in 1940. The latest revision was 
made in 1955. 

Every state in our nation has a parole 
system on its statute books but very few 
states have adequate systems. One state, 
for instance has never appropriated monies 
to provide a staff to put its parole system 
into practice — a prisoner is released on 
parole, but there is no supervision of that

prisoner and no records of parole viola- 
tions, yet the records of the state indicate 
that parole in that state is 90 per cent 
successful. 

Nevertheless, more and more states are 
developing not only adecjuate but excellent 
parole systems. Wisconsin, for instance, 
with only two parole officers in 1929, had 
developed by 1949, a state- wide, state 
administered parole system with 77 agents, 
established under desirable standards, so 
that every area of the state now has parole 
services. 

As might be expected in a system so 
relatively new, there are no nationally 
centralized statistics in such items as viola- 
tions, nor even a uniform method of keep- 
ing records. 

CITE.S California 

Nevertheless, thorough studies of some 
of the states which have adequate record 
systems — New York and California, for 
instance — indicate that approximately 60 
per cent of all paroled prisoners success- 
fully meet the requirements of parole; the 
large majority of the 40 per cent who do 
not (84 per cent) are returned to prison 
not for the commission of a crime but as 
the result of violations of the regulations 
of parole which, in the opinion of the 
parole board, warrant their return to pre- 
vent the commission of a crime. In North 
Carolina and California approximately 
90 per cent of the prisoners who are dis- 
charged are released on parole. In Vir- 
ginia, where only 41 per cent of the dis- 
charged prisoners are paroled, approxi- 
mately 70 per cent of the parolees success- 
fully meet the parole recjuirements. 

The largest majority of prisoners who 
violate parole do so within the first 90 days 
after their release; once over the hump of 
the first six months they are considered 
pretty well on their way toward becoming 
law-abiding citizens. 

Are Best Risks 

Persons who have been convicted of 
murder and rape and have been judged to 
t)e good parole risks, incidentally, have 
proved to be among the best parole risks; 
forgers, larcenists, and auto thieves are 
among the pcwrest risks. 

Parole rccjuircs careful and studied se- 
lection -selection of whom to parole and 
selection of when to parole him. The job 
of selection is the job of the parole board. 
It is a time consuming job which rec]uires 
a knowledge of the prisoner under con- 
sideration and his potential for readjust- 
ing while t)n |\iroIe. 

Since the state parole boards determine 
which of (he prisoners arc tt) be released 
on parole and w^icn. the calibre of a parole 
board is extremely important. At one time 
the release of a prisoner was considered to 
be the prerogative of the exccoitivc alone. 
That picture has been gradually changing.

and more and tnore states have full-time 
paid members, fewer part time and ex- 
officio or one-man boards. The merit sys- 
tem is being put into effect more and more 
often for the selection of parole officers, 
and in three states for parole boards, as 
distinct from the political-appointment 
system. 

Part Time Boards 

Every state has a board or commission 
responsible for paroling. They range in 
size from a one man commission to a seven 
man board. In only 16 states and the fed- 
eral government do the board members 
serve full time. In the other states they 
serve part time or are ex-officio and the 
members hold other state positions. 

In three states the board members are 
celected by competitive examination under 
a merit system. Elsewhere they are ap- 
pointed by the governor or by another state 
official such as the chief justice of the su- 
preme court. Some appointments are to 
individuals with considerable knowledge 
and experience in the field of corrections 
— but the majority are to individuals with 
little or no knowledge of the field prior 
to this appointment. 

In some states the person being con- 
sidered for parole has been thoroughly 
studied and the board spends much time 
reviewing his carefully documented rec- 
ords and in interviewing him and those 
who know him. In many states the board 
selects parolees with little information 
about him and his potential — and in sev- 
eral states the board does not enven inter- 
view the person prior to paroling him. 
Rehabilitation 

A good parole system requires careful 
preparation for parole release — prepara- 
tion which must begin when the prisoner 
enters the institution. Incarceration should 
offer a program to re-educate and re-direct 
attitudes and behavior — as well as custody 
to prevent escape. However the majorit)' 
of correctional institutions are budgeted 
and staffed primarily to maintain secure 
custody with a tiny fraction of total expen- 
ditures spent for a staff and program to 
re-educate and re-direct attitudes. 

A prisoner's return to society can be by 
cither of two methods : 

1. Discharge from the institution 
after the completion of his sentence 
without any supervision or control. 

2. Parole with supervision and 
controls. 

No less than 98 per cent of the inmates 
of correctional and penal institutions re- 
turn to the community. It is the opinion of 
parole authorities that all parolees require 
controls and guidance until they are restab- 
lished in jobs, homes, and families. Parole 
authorities consider release without parole 
a decided danger to society. 

A good parole system requires sufficient

Staff trained to work with and closely su- 
pervise those persons released on parole. 
With as many as "iO parolees assigned to 
one parole officer — each parolee might per- 
sonally receive less than an hour of the 
parole officer s counsel in a month. 

Without supervision there is parole in 
name only. Such is the case in many states 
where individual parole officers still are 
assigned from ^0 to several hundred cases 
lor supervision — where there is not even 
time to verify job and residence — and 
where parole officers are untrained at the 
time of the appointment and receive no 
training after appointment. 

Parole where it has been put to work 
with the board, the institutional services 
and the staff required— has proved its 
value. It cuts down on institution popula- 
tion and provides control within a normal 
community at a tost far less than that of 
imprisonment. The savings are even 
greater when you consider that the parolee 
is a wage earner, a taxpayer, and in most 
instances is supporting dependents who 
would otherwise require public assistance. 

The number of parole violations re- 
corded by any parole system will vary ac- 
cording to the degree and quality of the 
parole supervision. Where parolees are 
closely supervised they can be returned to 
custody often prior to the commission of 
a new crime. Where there is little or no 
parole supervision, the whereabouts and 
activities of parolees are unknown and vio- 
lations of parole come to light only after 
commission of new crimes. Parole viola- 
tion rates between the states therefore can- 
not be compared without comparing the 
quality of parole administration and ser- 
vices in each state.

MOTORING RULES "DOWN UNDER 



II 



Recently returned from an ex- 
tended visit in New Zealand where 
he studied driver licensing pro- 
cedure and "traffic laws, Ross 
Dewdney, Driver Improvement 
Analyst of the California Depart- 
ment of Motor Vehicles, has in- 
cluded in his report some interest- 
ing observations on highway signs 
and road markings used "Down 
Under," which are reprinted from 
California Highways and Public 
Works magazine. 



We found the road signs in New Zea- 
land very adequate, much more so than we 
had expected. The most familiar and inter- 
esting signs to us were the following: A 
speed restriction sign is a circular disc 
with a red circle around the outside and 
:with black figures on a central white back- 
, ground. Of these signs, 19 out of 20 show 
me figure 30. There are few cases in 
which additional speed restriction is im- 
iposed, such as 15 miles per hour or 10 
miles per hour and a similar sign is used 
there. The sign doesn't have any statement 
iS to "miles per hour" or "speed limit," 
just the figures. The motorist is supposed 
to know what it means. 'When you come 
to the end of the speed restriction zone, 
instead of a sign with which you are fa- 
miliar which would say "End 30 Mile 
Zone, " there is only a circular disc about 
the same size as the other but with a black 
diagonal bar on a white background. This 
is called the "De-restriction " sign. And 
wherever there is a speed restriction sign, 
somewhere further along you will find the

"De-restriction" sign. Strange to say, we 
found a good many De- restriction signs 
which didn't seem to be in any way asso- 
ciated with restriction signs. 

Parking limit signs or no parking signs 
have a lemon yellow background with 
black letters. "No parking" has the letters 
"N P" on this sign; parking limit signs 
a large P and underneath, the number of 
minutes permitted. 

We discovered that New Zealand does 
not use the curb marking signs with which 
we are familiar, but these no parking signs 
and parking restriction signs are much 
larger and more clearly marked than our 
own. In connection with parking, we dis- 
covered that they require much greater

highways and protect with stop signs are 
not SO protected over there. However, they 
do have a good many stop signs which are 
similar in shape to our own, not quite so 
large, colored a lemon yellow instead of 
red, with black letters. 

All the large cities have a few signal 
lights, with similar light patterns to ours, 
but we had expected a good many more 
than we found. 

Caution signs of various sorts are very 
frctjuently used and are cjuite adequate. 
Of course, to one familiar with California 
signs one is slightly amused at the word- 
ing used. What we call curves are always 
"bends," and such signs as "sharp bends" 
or "caution — deceptive bends," are quite 
frequent. We also discovered that a slip- 
pery road was apt to be called "greasy." 

New Zealand is very proud of its school 
patrol system in which the honor of being 
on the school patrol is determined on a 
merit system. We discovered that the boys 
or girls, as the case may be, who are on 
the school patrol, regard their position 
very seriously. They are given a stop sign 
on a pole similar to the school patrols in 
this country. We found, however, that the 
orders of the school patrol are much more 
vigorously enforced, and we learned that 
persons who violated the orders of the 
school patrol were really apt to get a 
rough going over by the magistrate. 

As mentioned above, not ever)' sidewalk 
extension is an authorized pedestrian 
crosswalk. The crosswalks, however, were 
well marked. The usual marking was a 
scries of vertical bars, the bars being per- 
haps six feet long and approximately two 
feet apart going across from one curb to 
the other. We found these crosswalks very 
easy to see and found that pedestrians in 
these crosswalks were usually treated with 
utmost courtesy. Woe to the pedestrian, 
however, who tries to cross anywhere else. 
The car driver has the right of way and 
really knows it. With this exception, we 
discovered that New Zealand drivers are, 
as a whole, much more courteous and con- 
siderate of others than our California 
ones We noticed that they were especially 
careful and courteous out on the open 
road when they would come to a band of 
sheep or cattle. Such iKcurrenccs are vcr)', 
very many and very frequent, since New 
2^'aland is primarily a livcsttxk countr)-.

with emphasis on sheep and on cattle. 
Even on the important through highways 
a person would have to stop or slow down 
to a crawl a dozen times a day because of 
the bands of livestock going one way or 
the other. 

Directional and mileage signs are very 
frequent and well marked. As you came to 
a crossroad you would see anything from 
one to eight or nine of these signs in both 
directions on the crosswalk, one sign for 
each of the major points to which the 
road would lead. The signs are painted 
yellow with black letters and are maintain- 
ed by the Automobile Association, and 
they do a very good job. The signs usually 
contain the mileages which we found to 
be quite reliable. In one or two places we 
found that instead of a series of single 
signs, several places were listed on a sin- 
gle sign. This was especially true in Christ- 
church and one or two other places. 

In the North Island, most of the many 
narrow bridges have a sign at one end 
which reads, "Narrow Bridge, please give 
way." At the other end of the same bridge 
the sign would simply read "Narrow 
Bridge." The idea is that a person travel- 
ing in one direction would give the right 
of way to the person traveling in the 
other. We learned that this was purely a 
matter of courtesy, that there was no law 
requiring it. The signs were so distributed 
that signs on half of the narrow bridges 
would give the right of way in one direc- 
tion and the other half in the other direc- 
tion. In the South Island, however, there 
were no such signs. Apparently in this and 
a good many other respects, the usual pro- 
cedure and rules varied from one island to 
another 

Speaking of bridges, we found that 
New Zealand has a great many old one- 
way bridges, becoming rather decrepit and 
dilapidated and about ready to cave in. All 
of them were marked by signs limiting the 
size of trucks which might pass over them. 
We discovered, however, that the country 
is replacing these by modern bridges just 
as rapidly as they can. Being a country 
with much rainfall and many rivers and 
streams, of course, the bridges are numer- 
ous and they cant all be replaced at once. 
In the South Island there are many long 
bridges. Some of these have been replaced 
by good structures, a few ha\e not. One of 
the most interesting of the "have nots" 
was a monstrosity said to be about 4/5 of 
a mile in length with rails fastened to the 
timbers of the bridge and extending the 
entire length thereof. A person with an 
Austin or certain other very small cars had 
sufficient room on each side of the tracks 
to fit between the outside track and the 
bridge railing. Persons with normal ve- 
hicles, however, had to drive with their

ri^hthand wheels on the inner side of the 
rails. Considering the fact that all New 
Zealand railroads are narrower than stand- 
ard gauge, this brings vehicles in reason- 
ably close contact as they pass one an- 
other ! We have been wondering ever since 
what happens when a train starts to cross 
the bridge at one end and the 3/5 of a 
mile at the other end is occupied by ve- 
hicles! 

The travel folders usually grade the 
New Zealand roads in three different 
types: (1) "sealed roads"; (2) "metal 
roads; ' (3) just plain roads. 

The better roads are called sealed roads 
because the customary type of pavement 
used is a surface in which gravel or other 
aggregates are tar sealed. This forms a 
\ery good surface and one of considerable 
endurance. There are a few miles of con- 
crete pavement, some of bitumin, all of 
which are included in this general category 
of sealed roads. By comparison, I would 
say that most of these sealed roads arc- 
fully as good as our better country roads 
and some of our state highways. New Zea- 
land does have a few miles of four-lane 
divided highways. These are called motor 
ways. Some 20 miles of good motor ways 
are found in a stretch just north of Wel- 
lington on the coast route, not quite equiv- 
alent to intersections. Then there are two 
stretches of approximately seven miles

each, in the Auckland area, of good free- 
way. This freeway is just being opened at 
the present time. 

The second classification of roads, call- 
ed "metal road," is something of a puzzle. 
The word "metal" seems to designate 
either large gravel or crushed rock. The 
metal roads we found are apt to be very 
dusty, rather treacherous because of loose 
rock or gravel, and tend to be quite 
"washboardy." What puzzled us was that 
road maps and even the guide published 
by the Automobile Association show no 
distinction, practically speaking, between 
these metal roads and good tar sealed 
roads. The Automobile Association puts 
out an instructive and interesting booklet, 
usually quite reliable, describing in some 
detail each stretch of road that you will 
be traveling over and lists the approxi- 
mate speed which you can expect to make 
over that stretch of road. 

For good roads, they use the figures 
"ATS" meaning, "average touring speed." 
We found that in most stretches metal 
roads were designated as "ATS" just the 
same as the good sealed roads. Perhaps 
this is due to the fact that the average 
New Zealander seems to drive just as fast 
on the metal roads as he does on the seal- 
ed road; perhaps he finds that the faster 
he drives the more he avoids the bumps ! 
To us, however, some of these metal roads 
were rather disappointing. There is much 
work being done on these roads, many of 
them being gradually transformed to seal- 
ed roads. In other words, it should not be 
many years before New Zealand will have 
an extensive network of excellent roads. 

During the construction process, how- 
ever, we found some of the going rather 
unpleasant because it seems they expect you 
in most cases to drive over the road during 
construction time. In many cases the base 
of the road seems to be rocks about the 
size of your fist or larger. Needless to say, 
traveling over a two-mile stretch of such 
roadway was a bit painful. We also dis- 
covered that during these road construc- 
tion processes there was a noticeable lack 
of flagmen and other guides to direct the 
traveling public as to which way to go and 
how to get there. At one stretch we came 
suddenly upon a tar sealing in process. We 
didn't want to go through the stretch of 
gooey tar and there were no guides to tell 
us what to do. We did remember, how- 
ever, that a quarter of a mile down the 
road there had been a fellow leaning on 
his shovel whose duty was perhaps to 
guide us but who had failed to do so. So 
we had to back up a quarter of a mile and 
then take a detour to the side. This lack 
of guides or flagmen was not universal

and in some places we found them verj' 
courteous and very helpful. 

The "just plain roads include dirt 
roads in which a few rocks had been 
placed to fill up the holes and which scrap- 
ers had gone over once in a while. Usually 
before you get on to these you have some 
sort of description as to what you may 
encounter and actually we didn't find 
many of them too bad — or at least we ex- 
pected what we came to. In general we de- 
cided that it was the best policy not to get 
too far off the beaten tracks. 

One of the most interesting experi- 
ments being carried on at present in New 
Zealand is on a lOO-mile stretch of high- 
way between Wellington and a town with 
the unpronouncable name, "Packakariki." 
Driving south one comes to a most inter- 
esting sign: "You Are on the Guinea Pig 
Highway.' Then follows in rather rapid 
succession numerous signs, many new and 
different, each aimed at securing public 
reaction and performance — studied to de- 
termine their effect on the driver. In addi- 
tion, according to published news releases, 
it is intended on this road, "to righten and 
correlate control, " and "to tc-st new meth- 
ods of catching the erring motorist." 

At strategic points along this route there 
are located radio equipped "traffic sta- 
tions" from which long stretches in each 
direction arc visible. These stations are in 
constant contact with patrol cars. Micro- 
wave speed detectors and polaroid cameras 
are used to detect violators. 

One interesting sign says "yellow bars 
show spacing for 40 m.p.h.,5^ and we see 
a series of horizontal bars across the traffic 
lane to show how far apart cars should be 
for 40 m.p.h. We also noted use, in places, 
of the solid-broken line combination so 
familiar in California.

and others actively engaged in the preservation of the most precious of all natural 
resources — human life — know the vital importance of protective laws. 
There must be protective. legislation, too, if we are to save an irreplaceable heritage — our oil 
reserves — from waste. 

Proposition 4 on the November ballot is that law — a model conservation measure — which will 
increase California oil production and prevent waste. 

Under Proposition 4, 100 per cent more oil can be produced in California even without dis- 
covery of a single new oil field. 

Doubling California's oil production will mean protection against spiraling gasoline prices 
because more California oil cuts to a minimum our dependence on costlv oil transported from 
abroad.

HE'S ONE OF YOU -GIVE HIM A VOTE 

Former Deputy Chief of the San Francisco Police Depart- 
ment, James L. Quigley, a Democrat, is running for Congress 
from the Fourth District, San Francisco. Jim, who retired re- 
cently, demonstrated his aggressiveness and ability by work- 
ing his way up through the ranks of the department. He will 
carry that same ability to Washington. 

Quigley has held olhce as president of the Police Officers' 
Association, the Police Widows and Orphans Aid Association 
and the Veteran Police Officers' Association. He is past Com- 
mander of Police Post No. 456 of the American Legion and 
a member of the Sergeant Charles J. Gafin Post No. 9626, 
Veterans of Foreign Wars. 

Former Deputy Chief Quigley is no stranger to Legislative 
procedure. In 1928 he resigned from the department and was 
elected an Assemblyman to Sacramento, serving two terms. He 
returned to the department in 1931 and for years coached his 
fellow officers taking promotional examinations.

S.F. INSPECTORS* SHAKE-UP 



A major reorganization of the 200-man 
Inspector's Bureau of the San Francisco 
Police Department is under way as this 
issue of the Journal goes to press. 

Already a series of transfers in the Po- 
lice Department of the Bay city has been 
effected by Chief Francis Ahern with a 
promise of many more to follow. 

Chief of Inspectors James English is 
out and has been transferred to Taraval 
Station. His salary is thus reduced from 
$1,107 per month to a regular Captain's 
pay of $764 per month. 

Dissatisfaction with the operation of the 
Inspectors' Bureau has been given by the 
Chief for the change which, he announced, 
has the approval of the Police Commission 
and the Mayor of San Francisco, George 
Christopher. 

In the sweep, the Chief transferred 
nine Captains and nine Lieutenants and as 
this is written, promises to make further 
changes to produce "greater efficiency" in 
the bureau. 

Here are tlje new assignments of the 
i commissioned police officers involved in 
yesterday's shake-up: 

Captain James English, relieved as Chief 
of Inspectors and transferred to Taraval 
Station. 

Captain Edward Greene, transferred 
from Taraval to Potrero Station. 

Captain Peter Conroy, transferred from 
Potrero to Headquarters Company as act- 
ing property clerk. 

Captain William Hanrahan, from Com- 
pany K of Accident Prevention Bureau to 
the Juvenile Bureau. 

Captain John Engler, from the Juvenile 
Bureau to Mission Station. 

Captain Philip Kiely, transferred from 
Northern Station and promoted to Super- 
vising Captain. 

Captain Daniel McKlem, promoted 



from Director of Traffic to Chief of In- 
spectors. Captairi Daniel Kiely, transferred 
from assignment as Supervising Captain 
to Director of Traffic. 

Captain Harry Nelson, transferred from 
Mission Station to Northern Station. 

Lieutenant Edward J. Moody, transfer- 
red from the Bureau of Inspectors to Com- 
pany K of the Accident Prevention Bu- 
reau. 

Lieutenant Joseph Engler, from the Bu- 
reau of Inspectors to Potrero Station. 

Lieutenant George Eggert, from Potrero 
to Mission Station. 

Lieutenant Eldon Beardon, from the 
Bureau of Inspectors to Park Station. 

Lieutenant Daniel Quinlan, from 
Northern Station to the Bureau of Inspec- 
tors. 

Lieutenant John J. Curran, from Cen- 
tral Station to the Bureau of Inspectors. 

Lieutenant William Lingafelter, from 
Park Station to the Bureau of Inspectors. 

Lieutenant Kenneth Himmelstoss, from 
Mission to Northern Station. 

Lieutenant Arthur Williams, from the 
Traffic Bureau to Central Station. 

Captain English, who has been with the 
department since 1928, charged that he 
had not received a proper explanation for 
his transfer but Chief Ahern countered 
with the accusation that the Inspectors' 
Bureau had long needed reorganization 
and that he had contemplated changes 
four months ago which he delayed because 
of the heart attack recently suffered by 
Captain English. 

McKlem, the new chief inspector, is a 
veteran of 3 1 years on the force. 

As a lieutenant, he headed the robbery 
bureau in 1947. In 1949 he was promoted 
to captain and served as head of a number 
of district stations. 

When Ahern took office as chief, he 



promoted McKlem to Supervising Captain 
of the districts. McKlem was named Di- 
r
